Riders on Muni’s N-Judah, the agency’s most-used line, will have to deal with some weekend service changes due to an ongoing rail replacement project.
Starting on February 24, Muni will shut down its N-Judah trains for six consecutive weekends so construction crews can work on improvement projects at Carl Street, and at Church and Duboce streets.
Bus shuttles will replace the N-Judah between Ocean Beach and Church Street. No N-Judah trains will run in the downtown Metro stations on the weekends, however, there will be extra rail service between the Castro Street station and the SoMa District Caltrain station during that time.
The weekend service changes are a precursor to a larger construction project set to occur on May 25. While crews replace the curved track at the intersection of Duboce and Church streets, the J-Church will be partially shut down and the N-Judah will be completely out of service. That project is expected to last until June 4.
With 45,000 daily boardings, the N-Judah carries more passengers than any other single Muni line.
