"If you lay heavy equipment down on Columbus Avenue and destroy our transportation corridors, you will basically render this entire area inaccessible," said a small business owner who operates a shop on Grant Avenue in North Beach. North Beach residents and business folk are pretty pissed about the Central Subway construction plans, as it's fit to create quite a vehicular nuisance for two years, something that they weren't told when they agreed to support the project. Board of Supervisors President David Chiu, whose district includes North Beach, has "shared and communication the frustration of my neighbors about the construction impact. I hope we can get better answers from the SFMTA and come up with a different plan." To the right, a photo of what the Central Subway Project construction has been like for the Union Square area.
