Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project

Project Update - November 15, 2017
Concrete street base repairs
Concrete street base repairs continue along Masonic Avenue between Fulton and Turk streets. The concrete street base is located underneath the asphalt roadway. During this phase of construction, crews will saw-cut, remove the damaged/broken street base and replace it with fresh concrete. Street base repairs are necessary in advance of final paving and help prolong the life of the new roadway. Final paving is still several months away. The typical work days are Monday - Saturday. 
While street base repairs are ongoing, the contractor may funnel Masonic Avenue down to one lane in each direction between Fulton and Turk streets. Also, due to change in roadway elevations during street base replacement, the contractor may keep the affected lane closed overnight. If crews are replacing street base in front of you home, driveway access may limited until that evening. Affected driveways are being notified in advance.  
This phase of street base work should be complete by the end of the week.  
Center Median
The contractor continues paver work along the new center median between Fell and Golden Gate streets. The contractor also continues work on the irrigation lines.
Curb Ramp and Sidewalk Work
The contractor continues curb ramp and sidewalk work along Masonic Avenue between Golden Gate Avenue and Anza streets. Curb ramps are being installed at intersection corners in advance of final paving.
Electrical Work
The contractor continues electrical wire installation for new street lights at several locations along Masonic Avenue.

Project Information
The Masonic Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project, between Geary Boulevard to the north and Fell Street to the south, will provide improvements for pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders. The goal of this project is to safely and efficiently accommodate the needs of all roadway users. The proposed improvements are the result of a planning process among Public Works, the Planning Department, SFMTA and Masonic Avenue residents and businesses.


Masonic Avenue: Proposed Plan


Project improvements include a new landscaped median, new cycle tracks, widened portions of sidewalk, repaving, bus bulb-outs, new street trees and sidewalk planters, new lighting in medians and pedestrian scale lighting on sidewalks and the conversion of a triangular space and road on the southwest corner of Geary Blvd. and Masonic Ave. into a small park and resident traffic only road, which includes public art.
