Last weekend, the San Francisco Municipal Railway (MUNI) did a major overhaul of a section of streetcar railbed at the corner of 30th and Church streets. The project was completed -- start to finish -- in 4.5 days, and it just so happened to take place outside the window of infrastructuralist Ken Murphy.
This is a time-lapse video showing the replacement of the MUNI tracks in front of my house. Demolition began on the evening of Friday, October 8, and work continued around the clock until early in the morning of Tuesday, October 12. The MUNI folks were nice enough to distribute earplugs to those of us in the immediate vicinity.
Very satisfying to watch, and some impressive work on MUNI's part:
