In the Gayborhood: Castro Sidewalk Project to Shut Down Parking for Three Months

The Castro GayborhoodGround will officially break next week on the long awaited Castro Street sidewalk widening project in the heart of San Francisco’s gay business district.

In order to lessen the amount of disruption in the area, city planners and the project contractor are planning an intense three months of work simultaneously on both the 400 and 500 blocks of Castro Street. The result is that parking on those blocks will be eliminated between March and early June during both the day and night.

“We think this is the best way to minimize the impact from the project,” said John Dennis, a designer with the city’s Department of Public Works who is acting as the project manager, during this morning’s (Thursday, March 6) Castro Merchants meeting. The work schedule is a change from initial plans to first work on one of the two blocks of Castro Street between Market and 19th Streets and then move on to the second block.
