West Portal – Closures and Big Machines

July 30, 2018

As everyone probably knows by now, West Portal tunnel is closed while they repair and replace the hundred-year-old lines.

The main staging area is West Portal, the commercial street. It’s a big mess. But a big intriguing mess. (And, we hasten to add, it’s open for business and the shops and restaurants are operating normally.)

We were fascinated by the huge, specialized machines parked everywhere in the first couple of blocks of West Portal.

And here are some more:

All in matching, very visible yellow, though each machine is different.

It’s all very much under control, and as long as you avoid Ulloa and Vicente and the stretch between, it’s not difficult to drive there or find parking.

 

But the stores sure could do with some support, so if you were thinking about shopping or dining there… please do. And if you have kids who are interested in huge machines and construction activity – it’s the perfect time to ogle the earthmovers!
