Since I moved to San Francisco (nearly a decade ago,) construction on the Stockton-Moscone MUNI had begun underway, but now I’m curious… What’s really happening down there?
And the price tag isn’t exactly inviting when you’re looking at $1.9-billion. BILLION. The 1.7-mile extension of the T-Third Street line has seen 11 years of build out and with many bumps on the road due to weather, directors, and ungodly deadlines—we’re finally seeing first hand what the new rail is starting to look like. And while the city claims the underground line will be ready by December 2019, the subway’s main contractor, Tutor Perini Corporation, told the Board of Supervisors it won’t be done until much later. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, “the line won’t be ready for passenger service until spring 2021—nearly 2½ years after the original target date.”
But regardless of the money that’s pouring into this (useless) project, the images are an exploration photographer’s wet dream.
