As part of Phase 2 of the Muni Metro Escalator Rehabilitation Project (, the outbound platform escalator towards Church Station at Van Ness Station will be out of service for safety upgrades. This project is on hold until early September. The escalator will be open and available for use until then. Work is expected to last for about four months.

To ensure safety as well as contain construction debris and minimize noise levels, a wooden barricade will be built around the escalator. Work hours are from 6 am to 3 pm weekdays with some weekend work required. Train service will not be impacted.
