Starting August 6, crews from a contractor for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission will start installing an eight-inch water pipe on Florida Street from 16th to 26th streets.
Parking will be temporarily unavailable on a block-by-block basis during construction hours (8 a.m. to 6 p.m.), but each restriction will last no longer than eight to 10 business days. If construction has not begun by noon, parking will be permitted.
The purpose of the project is to improve water delivery and reliability. It is scheduled to be completed by June 7, 2013, if there are no delays.
The project entails trenching and installing the pipe, servicing connections to properties and paving the streets in segments. Construction will affect parking spaces and perhaps businesses and residents in the construction area, who will have access to their garages but may be subject to delays.
A city construction inspector will be available on site during work hours to answer questions regarding the project.
