It’s coming along nicely, isn’t it? The 1.7-mile, $1.5 billion-plus Central Subway project is more than halfway done. And for residents who live any near the in-progress new line (e.g., your weary Curbed SF editor), the finish line cannot come soon enough.
The most recent batch of (gorgeous) photos, care of SFMTA photographer Robert Pierce, show what’s up underground as of mid-April. The interior skeleton of the subway is still under construction. The tunnels have developed more form. Lots of dust and dirt.
The Central Subway will feature four stations:
- 4th and Brannan Station at Fourth and Brannan (street level)
- Yerba Buena/Moscone Station at Fourth and Folsom streets (subway)
- Union Square/Market Street Station on Stockton at Union Square (subway)
- Chinatown Station at Stockton and Washington streets (subway)
Completion date is scheduled for sometime in 2019. Here are some recent images.
