[maxgallery name=”central-subway-san-francisco-union-square-market-street-station”]Nearly five years after its official ground breaking, San Francisco’s $1.6 billion central subway project is continuing to charge forward. With initial tunneling complete and the two tunnel boring machines (TBMs) long dismantled, significant work is being focused on the new subway’s three subterranean stations. A recent visit to the project’s largest station at Union Square and Market Street showed an expansive exposed trench at the intersection of Ellis and Stockton Street. The hole, located at the future station’s southern end, will house a connection with Market Street Muni lines and Bart. Contractor Tutor Perini expects the $300 million station to be completed by the 2nd half of 2017, followed by the subway’s opening in early 2019.
