Crews will be back at it in the Castro next week replacing the sidewalk section adjacent to buildings as work on the second phase of the streetscape project ramps up. As the Bay Area Reporter noted last month, fencing around the newly poured sidewalk extensions along the 400 and 500 blocks of Castro Street came down in early June to provide pedestrian access to the widened pathways.
But due to a late start this winter, crews ran out of time to replace the entire sidewalks by a self-imposed deadline to wrap up work by June 17 so as not to interfere with the Frameline LGBT film festival and Pride activities in the city’s gayborhood.
According to a posting today on a website tracking the project, demolition of the remaining older sections of sidewalk will begin Monday, July 14 on the east side of the 400 block of Castro Street, between 18th and Market streets. This portion of the sidewalk work will be done at night in order to allow for customer access during daytime business hours.
