This construction site has been temporarily restored to traffic during the holiday season. Construction will resume here next week.
Next week traffic modifications on Stockton and Ellis streets near Union Square will recommence to accommodate construction of the Central Subway tunnel.
Beginning Wednesday, January 2, Stockton Street between Ellis and Geary streets will be closed to all vehicles except emergency vehicles. Ellis Street between Stockton Street and the Ellis-O’Farrell Garage will be closed to westbound traffic.
This section of Stockton Street is planned to remain closed throughout the duration of Central Subway construction around Union Square.
Access to local businesses, residences and driveways will be maintained. The Central Subway team will continue to work closely with communities, local businesses and organizations to inform them of construction impacts and to ensure that appropriate mitigation measures are in place.
More information, including detailed traffic, transit and pedestrian impacts, is available in this press release from the SFMTA.
We appreciate your continued patience while construction is in progress.
