San Francisco Central Subway
San Francisco, California - Transportation
Long time San Francisco residents have relied on MUNI public transportation for years. One note about the original MUNI light rail system was that it was easy to go outbound west and south. It was convenient to travel between SFSU, The Mission, Noe Valley, Market Street, the Ferry Building etc. But if a passenger wanted to get to North Beach, Chinatown, SOMA, the Marina, there simply was no subway service.
In 2010 ground was broken for the new Central Subway. Channel Lumber has partnered with engineers and contractors throughout all phases of development and construction of the Central Subway.
The San Francisco Transportation Agency has two phases for the Third Street Light Rail Project. The first phase introduced and extension of the T line which created access to AT&T Park, USCF, SOMA. Massive development in the area has resulted in this access.
The next phase will extend the line to Dogpatch, Bayview-Hunters Point, and points beyond. For those of us who have lived in San Francisco for a while these new developments come with mix of excitement and questions about how these historic neighborhoods and communities will be affected.
Two boring machines are handling the excavation for the subway, which will stop at the Moscone Center, cross under Market Street, stop in Chinatown and terminate at Washington Square in North Beach.
A fourth phase of the project is also in place which will connect the Marina and Presidio to the MUNI subway network.
Channel Lumber is proud to partner with the San Francisco Transportation Agency in their ongoing effort to make San Francisco accessible to all residents via the MUNI light rail system. For more information on Channel Lumber products and services, please contact us.
