Introduction

The intersection of Elk and Sussex streets serves as a pedestrian access point to Glen Park, and includes a stairway that provides pedestrian access to the park from the intersection.

Through the Glen Park Neighborhood Association, the community has submitted requests to the SFMTA and district supervisor for safety improvements at the intersection.

Pedestrian safety improvements at the intersection include adding a marked crosswalk, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, and a new streetlight on the northwest corner, and adding 4 curb ramps on 3 new sidewalk extensions to improve safety and access to Glen Canyon Park. 

SFMTA and SF Public Works collaborated on design. SF Public Works is expected to complete construction in late 2020.

Cost and Funding 

This project was funded by the Neighborhood Program at the request of former District 8 Supervisor and Transportation Authority Board Chair Scott Wiener.
