Central Subway Update: Stockton Street Closure
July 31, 2012
Several local news agencies have covered the closure of Stockton Street from Ellis to Geary, which began on Monday July 30, 2012 and will continue for the next several years. The Union Square BID was prepared for the changes and has worked to keep the businesses along Stockton St. informed. We continue to enjoy heavy foot traffic in the area and don’t anticipate any major changes in retail sales or visitation. In order to help accommodate for the changes, Grant Ave. has been converted to a two-way street from Sutter to Geary. As usual, you can get more information and alternate routes on the Central Subway Blog.
Here is some of the news coverage:

Central Subway Update
May 7, 2012
We had our Central Subway update meeting last week and some interesting developments came to light. Expect large equipment to show up on Stockton Street to help create the underground tunnel.
