Rail replacement construction on J-Church line will resume tonight 

The second phase of Muni’s track replacement on its J-Church light-rail line will begin Friday night.

As a result of the construction, which is part of a larger $18 million project, Church Street will be closed to automobile traffic in both directions between 17th and Hancock streets. Portions of 18th Street and San Jose Avenue will also be closed, and light-rail service on the J-Church will end at the Church Street station, according to the Municipal Transportation Agency, which operates Muni.

The construction will begin at 5 p.m. tonight and last until 5 a.m. on Monday.

The J-Church is the third light-rail line to receive infrastructure improvements in the last year, following similar efforts to rehabilitate the N-Judah and L-Taraval lines. The current rail infrastructure on the J-Church line is over 30 years old.

More information on this weekend’s project is available online.
