The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) began a project in late March to rehabilitate aging rails on San Jose Avenue, adjacent to the Cam Beach Yard near Balboa Park Station.


“Continued rail maintenance work is an example of our efforts to upgrade San Francisco’s aging transportation infrastructure as Muni’s ridership continues to grow and the city expands,” said Edward D. Reiskin, SFMTA director of transportation. “With 700,000 Muni boardings a day and more than three million hours of transit service annually, it’s critical we invest in transportation infrastructure improvements and we thank our customers and the community for their patience.”

SFMTA said the M Ocean View Rail Rehabilitation project is part of regular rail maintenance to keep Muni tracks in good repair and will ensure safer, more reliable service by replacing worn infrastructure.

The rail rehabilitation project will require additional work on the M Line later this year.
