Introduction

In 2019, Transportation Authority Board Member Norman Yee (District 7) engaged District 7 community members in an inclusive participatory budgeting process to identify projects to improve the safety and quality of its neighborhoods. Through this process, community members requested traffic calming and pedestrian safety measures at specific locations. Through this project, the SFMTA plans to implement the following improvements:

  • Flashing pedestrian beacons and speed humps on Claremont Avenue, between Ulloa Street and Dewey Circle 
  • Flashing pedestrian beacons on 7th Avenue at Moraga 
  • Pedestrian refuge islands or speed humps on Yerba Buena, between Santa Clara and Miraloma 
  • Continental Crosswalk on Portola Drive between Kensington Way and Miraloma Drive 
  • Speed Radar signs on O'Shaugnessy on either side of the Malta Street intersection 
  • Speed hump on 12th Avenue between Taraval and Magellan
  • New pedestrian crossing on Clarendon at Dellbrook (Design only, to be constructed by future project)

In December 2020, the Transportation Authority allocated neighborhood program funds to SFMTA to design and construct traffic calming and safety measures identified through the Fiscal Year 2019/20 participatory budgeting process. This project will implement the following improvements:

  • Enhanced crosswalks on Ocean Ave at Frida Kahlo Way/Geneva Avenue, Granada Avenue and Miramar Avenue 
  • Traffic calming in the Lakeside One neighborhood, which is bounded by 19th Avenue, Junipero Serra Boulevard, Ocean Ave, and Sloat Boulevard 
  • Design of the reconfiguration of the 5-way intersection at Madrone Avenue, Vicente Street and Wawona Street 
  • Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacon (RRFB) on 10th Avenue at Pacheco Street 

Project/Study Partners

Design and construction will be led by the SFMTA.
