With Friday afternoon fast approach, San Franciscans can’t wait to get out of the office, out of the house, and into the streets for what’s forecast to be a sunny weekend.
But be warned that into every life a little rain must fall no matter what, in this case in the form of planned street closures and Muni reroutes, which might put a hitch into Sunday plans if not accounted for in advance.
SFMTA warns commuters that the 20th annual Glen Park Festival will close streets and alter bus routes for most of the day Sunday, with the following changes in effect between 6 a..m. and 7 p.m.:
- Diamond Street will close between Bosworth and Chenery.
- Wilder Street will close between Diamond and Carrie.
- Kern Street will close between Diamond and Brompton.
This also means that three Muni routes will have to go around the festival:
- The 35 Eureka (which connects Glen Park on a loop to the Castro) will reroute along Chenery, Elk, Bosworth, Arlington and Natick, with a temporary stop at Chenery and Diamond.
- The 36 Teresita (which connects Forest Hill Station to Caesar Chavez and Valencia) will reroute along Chenery, Elk, and Bosworth, with a temporary stop at Chenery and Diamond.
- The 52 Excelsior (which connects Forest Hill Station to Dublin and La Granda in Excelsior) will reroute along Chenery, Elk, and Bosworth, with a temporary stop at Chenery and Diamond.
Note that for those going to the Glen Park Festival: the Glen Park BART Station remains open and still the easiest way for festival goers to make it to the event.
The city anticipates no other planned snafus, although SFMTA does also caution that two scheduled Giants home games on Tuesday evening and Wednesday afternoon will cause the usual traffic snarls and transit crowding afterwards.
