Return of the Trash Cans

Additional Garbage Cans Coming to Our Neighborhood

Over the next several weeks, DPW will install up to 100 new garbage cans throughout District 5. In 2007, City Hall removed hundreds of garbage cans from our neighborhoods, and we (unfortunately) now see the result. 

 

 

Where would you like to see a new garbage can? Send a quick note at brownstaff@sfgov.org with your proposed location(s).

DPW Grinding and Paving Schedule

Week of February 5, 2018

– The contractor has begun grinding and paving operations along Hayes Street between Clayton Street and Webster Street. The grinding and paving schedule is as follows:

  • Lyon Street to Broderick Street: Grind on Monday 2/12/2018 and repave on Tuesday 2/13/2018
  • Broderick Street to Scott Street: Grind on Wednesday 2/14/2018 and repave on Thursday 2/15/2018
  • Scott Street to Steiner Street: Grind on Monday 2/19/2018 and repave on Tuesday 2/20/2018
  • Steiner Street to Webster Street: Grind on Wednesday 2/21/2018 and repave on Thursday 2/22/2018

During the grinding phase (removal of existing asphalt from roadway), driveway access will be available however minor delays should be expected if crews are working on your block. Please allow extra travel time.

 

However, during the paving phase, driveway access may be unavailable for 1-2 hours. The contractor will apply a tack coat (liquid asphalt) in advance of the hot asphalt to promote bonding between the concrete street base and the hot asphalt. Once the tack coat has set, crews will begin applying the hot asphalt to the roadway. Crews will need to ensure the hot asphalt cools-down prior to allowing traffic on to it. During this time, driveway access may not be possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please note, a few days after the paving work is complete on a block, crews will return to adjust castings flush with the road. This scope of work will require the contractor jack-hammer, adjust, and pave around the newly adjusted casting. This phase of work is typical during paving operations.

– This week, crews also continue curb ramp work at the Hayes/Buchanan and Hayes/Laguna intersections.

– The contractor continues saw-cutting additional blocks along Hayes Street (Fillmore to Van Ness) in advance of upcoming street base repairs. The saw-cutting operations will take approximately 2 days to complete on a block but could be delayed due to rain or unforeseen field conditions.

Week of February 12, 2018

Grinding and paving operations will continue on Hayes Street. Crews are scheduled to grind and pave Hayes Street between Lyon and Scott streets.

– Crews will continue street base repairs on Hayes Street. During this phase of work, crews will use heavy machinery to remove the broken sections of street base and replace them with fresh concrete. The street base repair schedule will be as follows:

  • Hayes Street (Fillmore to Webster): Monday 2/12 and Tuesday 2/13
  • Hayes Street (Webster to Buchanan): Tuesday 2/14 and Wednesday 2/15
  • Hayes Street (Buchanan to Laguna): Friday 2/16 and Monday 2/19
  • Hayes Street (Laguna to Octavia): Tuesday 2/20 and Wednesday 2/21
  • Hayes Street (Octavia to Gough): Thursday 2/22 and Friday 2/23
  • Hayes Street (Gough to Franklin): Monday 2/26 through Wednesday 2/28
  • Hayes Street (Franklin to Van Ness): Thursday 3/1 and Friday 3/2

The contractor will need to schedule street base re-construction work at both the Hayes/Gough and Hayes/Franklin intersections. The street base repair work at these two intersections will be quite extensive. More details to be provided once the work is scheduled.

– On Friday February 16, 2018, the contractor is targeting to complete paving work that remains on Scott Street, just south of the Haight Street intersection. This very small section of paving should be of minimal inconvenience.

Haight Street

The contractor has wrapped up most of the contractual work along Lower Haight. The work that remains under the current contract is sidewalk work at the northwest and southeast bus stops at both Divisadero/Haight and also Fillmore/Haight. The contractor will also need to complete any punch list work along Haight Street between Central and Laguna streets.

 

*** Please Note: The construction schedule is subject to change due to rain, equipment breakdown, unforeseen field conditions, etc. Please see the posted “no parking” barricades for exact parking restrictions. Parking restrictions may vary per block. ***

DPW December 2017 Update

An update on DPW’s Hayes Street project.

Last week

The contractor shifted crews to Hayes Street. Staff began working on installing concrete bus pads along Hayes Street. The contractor began working at the Steiner, Fillmore and Webster intersections. The bus pad work required the contractor saw-cut and remove the existing roadway and street base at bus stops. Crews then began installing reinforced rebar pads in the pits in order to back-fill them with fresh concrete.

The contractor also continued curb ramp work on Hayes at the Steiner, Scott, and Clayton intersections.

This Week (December 4-9)

Crews are scheduled to pour the bus pads at the Hayes/Steiner, Hayes/Fillmore, and Hayes/Webster intersections. Unfortunately, once the concrete has been poured, the area will be off-limits to vehicle traffic for 10 days to ensure the concrete reaches the necessary strength. During bus pad construction, the work will necessitate we temporarily relocate the bus stops. You may see some nearby areas posted for “No Parking 24/7” as they serve as temporary bus stops.

*** Please Note: The construction schedule is subject to change due to rain, equipment breakdown, unforeseen field conditions, etc. Please see the posted “no parking” barricades for exact parking restrictions. Parking restrictions may vary per block. ***
