Portions of Muni’s heavily-used N-Judah line will be closed down next year due to construction work on Carl Street in San Francisco's Cole Valley neighborhood.

The $18.3 million project, expected to begin in February, will replace tracks on Carl Street between Arguello Boulevard and Cole Street.

The work also includes the replacement of overhead wires, signal upgrades, street repaving, and the installation of traffic bulbs on Carl Street at its intersections with Cole and Stanyan streets, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. Funding for the project will come from a combination of state, local, and federal sources.

About 5,700 customers board the N-Judah at the three intersections affected by the project, the SFMTA said. The agency is still determining the specific length and timing of the construction projects. Replacement bus service will be used when N-Judah service is down.

The SFMTA will host a community meeting on Wednesday night to discuss the project. The meeting will take place at the Park Branch Library at 6 p.m.
