Is the Hyatt Embarcadero taxi stand still open during road construction?

Many people take BART from SFO airport to the Embarcadero BART station and then catch a cab from the taxi stand at the Hyatt outside the station to their final destination. This is often a cheaper alternative than taking a taxi directly from SFO.

With the construction going on right in front of the hotel (the hotel is still open!), finding the cab stand a midst the massive equipment and street closures can be hard. The trick is taking exit A2.

Here's my step-by-step direction with photographs:

Exit BART turnstiles then look for Exit A2
In the BART/MUNI station, look for Exit A2 (Market & Davis St)
When you exit onto the Market Street, Go straight past the Wells Fargo Bank

Before you hit Drumm St, turn left round the corner to the taxi stand
Stand is at corner of California & Drumm St

If there are no taxis when you reach California Street (highly unlikely), turn left and walk down California St to Davis. There's another taxi stand one block away between 9am and 3pm.

Here's the map showing the location of both taxi standards relative to the BART station:
