Burrito Justice: Loop the T-Third

Our pal over at Burrito Justice has a “modest proposal” when it comes to the construction of the Central Subway:

Unless we see a change in the SFMTA’s attitude, we are left with no choice but to hijack the tunnel boring machine as it exits its tunnel at Columbus and Union and continue boring tunnels.

Simply catching sight of the tunnel-boring machine that will soon bore its way under Fourth Street set Mr. Justice’s synapses a-firin’. He lays his plan out in excruciating detail, then asks for a show of hands.

Our hands are in the air, sir. Enthusiastically.

    If money were no object, certainly. But, in the real world, I’d settle for one more station at Washington Square.

    In his full proposal, he mentions Golden Gate park. Over a decade ago, there actually was a proposal to build another vintage streetcar line into the park: the G Golden Gate Park line. It would split off the F line at Market & Buchanan and go behind Safeway to join the N-Judah line. It would continue on the N line to 9th Ave where, instead of turning left as the N does, it would turn right and head north into the park. It would continue into a loop around the concourse by the museums. It would be a great way to get to the park and museums.

    Most of the track is already there. It would only be less than 1 mile of new track into the park. Some of the roll signs for the PCCs already have the “G Golden Gate” reading. I believe the G line proposal was shelved and the E Embarcadero line took precedence.
