Van Ness in San Francisco reopens following closure

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco's Van Ness Avenue reopened Sunday afternoon after it was closed for construction of an underground pedestrian tunnel.

It will be the first pedestrian tunnel under Van Ness in San Francisco history.

An animation shows what crews are building - a pedestrian tunnel between the future medical center and its office building.

The section between Post and Geary was affected by the closure.

They started the shutdown at midnight Friday, really throwing a kink into the morning commute.

It was enough to stop some residents dead in their tracks.
