MUNI's Central Subway tunnel boring machines have already made it past Union Square and are inching their way towards Chinatown. Once they make it to North Beach, the SFMTA plans extract the machines without building a station, and wave goodbye to the neighborhood. Many San Franciscans see that as completely nonsensical, and hope to convince transit authorities to keep the machines underground until they reach tourist-filled Fisherman's Wharf. Advocacy organization "SF NexTstop" has formed to fight for the extension of the subway project. To boot, two different articles on the subject appeared in the Chronicle this past week, signaling growing interest in the plans. Local officials are taking note, and the SFCTA is now planning to dedicate $150,000 towards a feasibility study for the extension. That by no means guarantees the subway will make it to the Wharf any time soon, but it's a push in the right direction nonetheless.

That group pushing for a Central Subway extension to Fisherman's Wharf - mentioned in Wednesday's column - is making some headway, but it's not quite time to start planning your trip to Scoma's on Muni Metro. The San Francisco County Transportation Authority, which administers the city's transportation sales tax money, is prepared to dedicate $150,000 to a feasibility study for the extension. The study, according to Tilly Chang, the SFCTA executive director, would move the notion of an extension of the T line past the Chinatown station beyond the idea stage. "It's intended to flesh it out a little bit," she said - "to look at potential alignments, whether it should be on the surface versus underground, what it might cost." That preliminary study, Chang said, would then be handed over to the Municipal Transportation Agency for a more in-depth look. The authority's Plans and Programs Committee will consider funding the study at its meeting Tuesday.

As the Central Subway’s earth-devouring machines extend the tunnels toward the Chinatown terminus and the North Beach site where they’ll be yanked from the ground, a group of transit advocates, neighborhood activists and business interests are pushing for a station in North Beach and an extension to Fisherman’s Wharf. Opponents, of course, are still pressing for the subway to be stopped, or at least for the tunnel boring machines to be parked in Chinatown and buried in place. But supporters of an extension, who are operating under the name SF NexTstop (the capital T, cleverly, is for the T line that will run in the subway) say taking the line north to the Wharf makes sense.

Sunday Streets returned to S.F. this weekend, and the Embarcadero used food and entertainment to lure pedestrians and bicyclists, above. The event, in which streets are closed to motorists, also featured a rock wall for children at Fisherman's Wharf, right. The next Sunday Streets will be on April 13 in the Tenderloin.
