Barely over one year - constructed started October 23, 2020. It helps that subsurface work was largely limited to the platform locations. A lot of BRT projects are basically utility replacement projects with some transit work on top, which is where the actual cost and time go. That's very true for both SF projects. Geary Rapid (phase 1 of Geary BRT) just wrapped up on time/on budget after several years of construction; Van Ness BRT is a never-ending shitshow because there are hundreds of unmapped utilities that haven't been touched since 1956.So wild that they could build all that in less than 2 years. I see the stuff going on in San Fran take a decade or two and even Indianapolis took 5.
