Community Meeting Regarding Carl Street Rail Repairs set for Nov. 9th!
Many regular N owner/riders may not be aware that starting in February 2012, the SFMTA will begin significant repairs and upgrades to the N-Judah tracks that run on Carl Street from Cole Street to Arguello Street. This is a much needed repair/improvement to the line, but you can be sure that during the time of the repair work, there will be significant delays on the line once work gets started.
If you live along Carl Street, you can likely expect issues regarding parking and access, and even if you don't, this project will directly affect your day-to-day use of the N. The SFMTA is hosing a community meeting on November 9th from 6pm to 730 pm at Grattan Elementary School Auditorium, located at 165 Grattan Street San Francisco, CA, 94117, where MTA and Muni staff will be there to talk about the work, and to answer questions.
If you can't make it to the meeting on time (oh, I don't know, because the N might be delayed during rush hour commute, right?) you can also email comments about the project directly to the folks in charge of the project via this email: CarlStRail@sfmta.com. Additionally, you can contact the PR officer assigned to this project at the following email address/phone number:
Jeannette Sanchez, Public Relations Officer
Fax: 415. 701.4391
and, if you want to get all specific, the contact information for the project manager of the project is here:
Ha Nguyen, Project Manager
Phone: 415. 701.4296
The last meeting was held way back in July, and it's unlikely there will be another before the new year, so you might want to stop by and check it out, or at least email/phone in your questions, so there's no nasty surprises come February.
