San Francisco rail improvement projects completed

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's (SFMTA) Church and Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the Carl Street Rail Replacement Project have been completed.

The two-year projects provided upgraded Muni tracks and signals, enhanced streetscape elements and new public art.

"We are very proud to be able to bring these significant improvements to this vital neighborhood. Our joint efforts have produced a much safer, far more attractive and efficient way for transit riders, cyclists and people on foot to make their way around. I want to thank the neighborhood for their patience during construction and congratulate the whole community and our partners for a job well done," said Ed Reiskin, SFMTA director of transportation.

The projects showcase collaboration between various city agencies and local community groups including SFMTA, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission, Department of Public Works, City Planning Department, San Francisco Arts Commission and the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA). Most of the $29-million to fund the project came from the Federal Transit Administration. Since 2008, the SFCTA has provided more than $5.4 million in Prop K transportation sales tax funds for design and construction.
