Safety improvements are coming to the intersection of Sickles Avenue and Alemany Boulevard. The intersection is between two High-Injury Network corridors (San Jose Avenue and Mission Street) and has been the location of bike and pedestrian injury crashes.
Planned intersection improvements include:
- Traffic signal replacement and upgrades, including adding pedestrian countdown signals and accessible pedestrian signals where they are missing
- Upgrading street lighting
- Adding left-turn lanes and left-turn signals for both directions of Sickles Avenue
The Transportation Authority provided funding from the half-cent sales tax for transportation to SFMTA for the design phase of the traffic-signal upgrades. Construction for the project is anticipated to begin in 2023 and signal upgrades may be complete by 2024.
