N-Judah Muni line to shut down until June 4
San Francisco’s N-Judah Muni line will shut down all rail service starting at 7 p.m. Friday, May 25, with buses filling in until rail service resumes Monday, June 4.
Nx express-bus service will run without changes, according to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, but bus service to replace the regular N-Judah line will vary. Muni is adding two routes to supplement the N express. The Nax and Nbx routes will operate along parts of the regular N route, in the direction of the main commute.
The shutdown is necessary because of track work associated with Muni’s Church and Duboce Track and Street Improvement Project and the Carl Street Rail Replacement Project. The project also includes the construction of “bulbouts” — enlarged sidewalk areas — to make it easier and safer to board the N-Judah, plus improvements to some sidewalks and to some water and sewer infrastructure.
The J-Church also will be affected by the track work, and some service will be rerouted on the 22-Fillmore and N-Owl routes, according to Muni:
The N-Owl (including weekend/holiday early mornings) will run between Ocean Beach – Caltrain (4th & King) with a detour on Frederick Street instead of Carl Street and a detour around Church and Duboce streets
