When I found out about Sunday's Doyle Drive ramp closure that will continue until 2013 - I thought "oh big deal." But then a good friend of mine sat me down and said, "Action, how am I supposed to get from my home in the Marina to my boyfriend's in the Sunset?"

On Sunday - the Northbound Doyle Dr on ramp to Southbound 19th/Park Presidio will be closed until 2013. So if you are going from the Golden Gate Bridge to the Marina/Downtown or SFO or the other way around, you have nothing to worry about. Marin to SFO/Sunset/Richmond drivers should be aware of the Southbound Doyle to Southbound Park Presidio closure that will occur only on Sunday night (weather permitting) from 11pm-5am.

So we brainstormed for a detour and here's what we came up with:

Take NB Doyle and get off at the parking lot next to the toll plaza. Take a right at the stop sign then right again at Lincoln Blvd. Take southbound Lincoln Blvd to 25th Ave. Take a left on 25th. Take 25th until it merges with Crossover Dr in Golden Gate Park. And Voila! Look at my art.

If you have a better route, let us know by leaving a comment or @'ing us. Remember, you can't make a left turn from Geary to Park Presidio.

Beginning at 8pm this evening (Friday 1/8) until Monday at 4am, the L-Taraval Line will be without light rail service between West Portal and the Zoo for construction. Muni Bus shuttles will be in place instead. The track work will take place at Taraval & 19th and also at Taraval & Sunset.

If you have any suggestions for a better route to take around this mess, leave it in the comments or @ us on Twitter.

ALSO IF you are driving this weekend, avoid 19th Ave and Sunset Blvd. According to the world's longest press release - SFPD will start off by closing Southbound 19th Ave and Northbound Sunset Blvd at 7pm this evening. After reading that press release, we kinda get the feeling that these closures may change during the weekend. Basically, when one direction of 19th is closed, the opposite direction of Sunset will be closed. Taraval will also be shutdown at the intersections with 19th and Sunset.

This work will continue next weekend and the one after that.

If you are in the area, please let us know how Traffic is by @'ing us on Twitter.

Now look what @cielogold made: Fast Pass Muni magnets made from recycled Fast Passes and bottle caps.
