SFMTA Twin Peaks Tunnel Community Meeting – Forest Hill

From SFMTA:

To maintain our Muni system and keep trains running effectively, SFMTA will be replacing all the tracks inside Twin Peaks Tunnel. The Tunnel runs between Castro and West Portal Muni stations.  A number of retrofits to the inside of the tunnel will also take place during the track replacement to avoid future shut-downs.  This meeting will provide more information about this project and allow residents to ask questions and voice their concerns. Details of the project, including construction timelines and staging areas, are still being evaluated and are subject to change.

This is one of three meetings being held throughout the Tunnel area. Residents who cannot attend one in their neighborhood are encouraged to attend one of the other meetings to learn more about the project.

  • Tuesday, March 24, 7:00-8:30pm, West Portal Playground Clubhouse, 131 Lenox Way
  • Thursday, March 26, 6:00-7:30pm, Castro Community Meeting Room, 501 Castro Street
  • Tuesday, March 31, 6:00-7:30pm, Gerald Simon Auditorium, 375 Laguna Honda Blvd

A brief presentation will begin at 6:15pm, followed by a Q&A session. There is limited parking available at Laguna Honda Hospital reserved for this meeting. Please plan accordingly.
