People crossing the street in a new crosswalk in Chinatown

Last month we joined Transportation Authority Board Chair Peskin, sister agencies SF Public Works and SFMTA, and community leaders to celebrate the ribbon cutting for the Broadway Chinatown Streetscape Project: a long-time effort that began with the community's vision for a safer, more livable neighborhood. Improvements include a reconfigured roadway to calm traffic, new concrete sidewalks, freshly planted trees, new bus shelters and curbside bus bulbs, new pedestrian-scale lighting, and decorative crosswalks and benches. 

The Transportation Authority was pleased to provide about $10 million of the total $15 million project cost from San Francisco's half-cent sales tax for transportation, along with local vehicle registration fees and One Bay Area Grant funds from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
