Clipper Street Traffic Calming Project
This project was made possible in part by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority through a grant of Proposition K Local Sales Tax Funds.
Various concerns have been expressed regarding traffic conditions along Clipper Street between Diamond Heights Boulevard and Douglass Street. They include:
This section of Clipper Street is 64’ wide and a designated bicycle route, has 4 lanes of traffic (2 each way), parking on both sides of the street east of Grand View, Muni service west of Grand View, no sidewalk on the south side of the street, and a designated speed limit of 35 mph.
Speeding – Data has been collected confirming concerns about speeding.
Clipper Street was re-striped in early 2008 to have one lane in each direction and a center turn lane for access to and from the residential driveways. Residents report lower speeds and noise levels thus far. A temporary island was also demarcated in the turn lane to discourage illegal passing in the turn lane. Funding for a permanent island or two in the turn lane is being sought. When the injunction against the city’s Bicycle Plan is lifted, bike lanes will also be added in both directions.
