The intersection of Elk and Sussex streets serves as a pedestrian access point to Glen Park and includes a stairway that provides access to the park from the intersection.
This project will address community members’ requests for safety improvements at the intersection as submitted to the SFMTA and district supervisor through the Glen Park Neighborhood Association.
This project will improve the north pedestrian crossing of Diamond Heights Boulevard at Sussex Street by adding a marked crosswalk, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, a new streetlight on the northwest corner, and four curb ramps on three sidewalk extensions at the northwest, northeast, and southeast corners.
Additional improvements include reducing the speed limit north of the intersection from 30 miles per hour to 25 miles per hour, removing nine parking spaces to improve visibility between drivers and pedestrians, and closing the north and south crossings of Diamond Heights Boulevard at Arbor Street to channel pedestrians to the improved crossing at Sussex Street.
