The long-desired plan to rehaul Portsmouth Square in San Francisco’s Chinatown just got a boost from the state to help it cross the finish line.

Assembly Member Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, on Friday announced a $4 million state budget investment in the huge project to reconstruct and improve Portsmouth Square, an enterprise in the works since 2013.

The project, which is expected to be completed in 2025, has hit some roadblocks as city officials dealt with cost challenges because of inflation and supply chain issues, Ting said. The city requested the $4 million earlier this year.
