Noisy Weekend Ahead with Demolition on Harrison Planned

I heard from some of my neighbors around 1st Street a couple of weekends ago about the unrelenting noise of the demolition of the Transbay bus ramp over Folsom Street near Essex. If you thought that was bad, you may want to make plans to get out of town this weekend when the demolition moves up to Harrison Street at Essex. Having just returned from a weekend getaway to Monterey/Carmel, I think that’s always an easy destination .. but I personally prefer heading north to Mendocino/Fort Bragg.

Here’s the Transbay JPA’s 10-day look ahead notice from Friday (with this past weekend’s information removed since it is no longer relevant):
