A map of the Project Area and its surroundings. To the west of the Project Area is a green line, running along brotherhood way from Lake Merced Boulevard to just east of Junipero Serra Boulevard, labeled "ParkMerced Bike Path." To the east of the Project Area are green lines labeled "Existing Bike Paths." Within the Project area are two blue lines, one connecting the green lines on either side, the other running from St. Charles Avenue to Daly City BART.


The Brotherhood Way Safety and Circulation Plan will develop near- and long-term concepts to improve safety, circulation, and connectivity through the Brotherhood Way and Alemany Boulevard corridors and on surrounding streets.

ConnectSF is San Francisco’s long-range transportation planning effort. As part of ConnectSF, the Streets and Freeways Strategy (PDF) identified the Brotherhood Way and Alemany Boulevard area for future planning to address safety on high-speed, high-capacity streets and improve neighborhood connections. The Streets and Freeways Strategy includes a high-level concept for the area to inspire future planning efforts.

The Brotherhood Way Safety and Circulation Plan is the next step in the planning process. The study will begin with an analysis of existing conditions to identify transportation needs and areas for improvement. Concepts will be developed to address transportation needs including near- and long-term improvements. 

Community engagement will be a key element of each study phase and a Community Working Group will be formed to guide all aspects of project development.

This study emerged as one recommendation from the ConnectSF Streets and Freeways Strategy, which is the city’s multi-agency long-term planning effort to build an effective, equitable, and sustainable transportation system.

This study is hoping to advance three key ConnectSF recommendations

  1. Prioritize safety
  2. Reconnect communities that are divided by freeways and large roads
  3. Build a complete network for walking and biking

The work will also advance recommendations from previous plans, including the Vision Zero Action Plan, BART Station Access Studies, and San Francisco’s 2009 bike plan.

Public engagement

The Transportation Authority is working with the community to draft study goals and understand key challenges near Brotherhood Way.
