This Week: N-Judah Upgrades, Cesar Chavez Ribbon Cutting

This week, the SFMTA will hold two community meetings on improvements coming to the N-Judah. It’s also time to cut the ribbon on the newly-finished redesign of Cesar Chavez Street, and another community meeting on Geary Bus Rapid Transit will be held in Japantown.

We’re having some technical problems with the actual calendar pages, which we’re working to resolve, but here are all of this week’s calendar highlights:

  • Wednesday: City officials will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony announcing the completed redesign of Cesar Chavez Street, which has been made safer with features like pedestrian bulb-outs, bike lanes, reduced traffic lanes, and new greenery. 11 a.m.
  • Also Wednesday: The SFMTA will hold a community meeting about replacement of the N-Judah tracks in the Sunset Tunnel, which will happen during 15 weekend closures this year. 6 p.m.
  • Thursday: Further down the N-Judah route, Irving Street, between Arguello and 9th Avenue in the Inner Sunset, is set to be redesigned to get Transit Effectiveness Project improvements like transit bulb-outs, stop consolidation, and transit signal priority. The SFMTA will hold an open house and make a presentation on the project, which is set to begin construction in March. 6 p.m.
  • Also Thursday: The SF County Transportation Authority will hold another community meeting on the Geary BRT project at the Japanese Cultural Center to solicit feedback on the latest design proposal. 6 p.m.
