Rain will delay rail replacement project in the Sunset again 

For the second straight weekend, rain will delay the Municipal Transportation Agency’s rail-replacement project in the Sunset District.

Construction crews from MTA were scheduled to embark on their second weekend of work to replace 30-year-old infrastructure of its L-Taraval light-rail line, but a wet and windy forecast will put off the project for another week.

Originally scheduled to finish the weekend of January 29, the expected completion date of the project has now been pushed back to the weekend of February 5. Barring more wet conditions, work on the replacement project will resume Friday, January 29, at 8 p.m., and last until 4 a.m. on Monday, February 1.

The replacement of the L-Taraval line is part of an $18 million project to rehabilitate portions of MTA’s aging rail infrastructure. The agency completed a similar project late last year on the N-Judah line.
