This runway repaving....
Yep... I would avoid flying via SFO on the affected weekends to the extent possible. The new SJC-EWR service will be helpful for me.

https://www.fly.faa.gov/ois/ is a great resource for advance warning of traffic management/ground delay programs before EDCTs are issued and delays actually post to flights. For instance, I connected via SFO last night, and with target delays of 140 minutes when I'd be arriving at SFO, I knew hours ahead of time that I'd likely misconnect, so I preemptively SDC'ed to a later flight. Sure enough, I arrived SFO at exactly 139 minutes past schedule and was glad to have the heads-up.
