Val,

That ramp near the Castro Station dates from the time that Muni BART were put under Market St. When Muni came to the surface at Castro and Market, it did so in the middle of Market.
Just a few yards west of the Castro Station you can see a few feet of the old Eureka Valley Station which was originally intended to serve the area. The first plan was to put Muni under Market St. as it is now, but it never came to fruition.
