Introduction

This project will design and construct traffic calming measures along the Folsom Street and Crescent Avenue corridors in District 9 to improve street safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. Traffic calming measures will help reduce speeding and cut-through traffic on local neighborhood streets. Locations for traffic calming include:

Mission Neighborhood

  • Folsom Street, 20th Street to 22nd Street: four-speed cushions
  • Folsom Street at 21st Street: two traffic islands

Bernal Heights Neighborhood

  • Crescent Avenue, Mission Street to Leese Sreett: one-speed table
  • Crescent Avenue, Porter Street to Bache Street: one-speed table
  • Crescent Avenue at Murray Street: one raised crosswalk (asphalt)

The Transportation Authority’s Neighborhood Program is intended to strengthen project pipelines and advance the delivery of community-supported neighborhood-scale projects, especially in Equity Priority Communities and other neighborhoods with high unmet needs.
