Construction at Haight & Fillmore Picks Up…Again

By Gio Acosta | August 29, 2020

Think all the street construction in Lower Haight is over? Think again. San Francisco Public Works has hired Ronan Construction, Inc. to perform water main replacement and sewer main replacement work at the intersection of Haight & Fillmore Streets, starting September 8, 2020.

The original project work included sewer main and water main replacement work, traffic and pedestrian signal work, curb ramp and bulb-out work, bus pad and bus bulb work, concrete street base repairs and repaving along Haight and Hayes streets. It first began in April 2015 and “ended” in August 2018.

The Lower Haight Merchants & Neighbors Association asked SF Public Works, why wasn’t this work completed in the original project? SFDPW said, “during excavation on the last project, we discovered that an AWSS (Auxiliary Water Supply System) cross bore needed to be relocated in order to complete sewer work at the intersection. In order to avoid delay of that project, the AWSS relocation work and sewer work at the intersection was placed into a new separate contract.” 

Well it seems that contract has finally emerged from the darkness. If you park a car near Haight & Fillmore, be prepared for parking to be non-existent in that intersection. If you live or own a business near there, construction is slated to happen Monday through Friday, 7:30am-5:00pm. While weekend construction is allowed, none has been scheduled at this time.

The entire project should take three months to complete; construction starting the week of September 8, 2020 and concluding in January 2021. Work is not scheduled during the Holiday Moratorium, which is between Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Day.
