Today we are excited to announce the debut of our Central Subway construction update emails. These emails will provide information about Central Subway construction along the project alignment in SoMa, Union Square, Chinatown and North Beach.
Starting today, we will email these updates weekly on Fridays to provide an overview of the Central Subway construction that is planned to occur in the next 10 days. To subscribe to the emails, please fill out this online form. If you prefer to view the weekly updates online, we will post links to them here, on Facebook and on Twitter.
The emails will include information about ongoing and upcoming construction; traffic, transit and pedestrian impacts; community meetings and more.
Below is a preview of this week’s debut construction update email. You can view the full version online here.
