Utilities extension work
In preparation for the future building of SF State’s Creative Arts Center, the first segment of a utilities extension project will begin approximately Oct. 21, along the south side of Font Blvd., between Lake Merced Blvd. and Arballo Drive. Every effort will be made to minimize disruption during construction, but there will be temporary lane closures requiring auto, bike and pedestrian traffic to be redirected. Updates will be posted regularly to the Capital Planning website at www.sfsu.edu/~build/construct/utilities.html where a map and detailed schedule are available.
