FOLP, if you haven't heard, there will be some construction work being done on Sacramento Street near CPMC in the coming weeks. We are re-posting here so that you're aware.
On Monday, March 7, construction will begin on Sacramento Street between Webster and Buchanan Streets to replace and install fiber optic network infrastructure in the road serving the hospital. The upgrade is being done to improve connection between facilities for better patient care and in preparation for electronic medical records. These upgrades will also assist the hospital in connectivity to city emergency services on a day-to-day basis and during a major earthquake or disaster. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our neighbors and patients.
We’re pleased to be working with Phase III construction, an experienced team working in the Bay Area and San Francisco serving clients such as BART, Verizon and Nextel. Construction will last 3 weeks, Monday, March 7-Friday, March 25. Hours for construction will be from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday barring any unforeseen need to work on a Saturday. A trench will be dug in the roadway. Access to CPMC’s emergency room will be available at all times. Passage on the sidewalk will be open at all times.
There will be one lane of automobile traffic on Sacramento Street between Buchanan and Webster during construction hours only. Flag persons will be at both ends of the street to direct traffic. Additionally, CPMC security will be onsite to provide direction for emergency vehicles and patients. We anticipate taking 7-10 parking spaces (not metered) on Sacramento Street between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Those parking spaces and the two-way use of the road will be returned to the neighborhood after 4 p.m. for overnight and early morning use. The Muni bus stop will be in operation throughout the duration of the project. We’re working closely with the City and Muni to provide safe passage and minimal disruption.
We anticipate that there will be noise associated with this project as we cut the cement; we apologize to those of you that will be home during the day and experience the noise. We’re working to minimize the disruption in the neighborhood by providing additional personnel to direct traffic.
Should an issue arise during construction please call Paula Lykins, manager of community relations at CPMC at 415-600-7482. If there is an urgent matter you may call security dispatch at 415- 600-0837 or Juan Carlos Dezubiria, project manager for Phase III on his cell phone at 408-690-5816.
