Holloway-Garfield 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.
Traffic Calming Update
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) held a community meeting on January 19, 2011 discussing the recent changes on Holloway Avenue and outlining the next steps of the project. In summary, attending residents felt the changes in the roadway design were undesirable. A vote was taken and a majority of those present agreed that the SFMTA should not pursue implementing the current roadway design and that a new design be developed for review. At the meeting, residents were asked if they would like to join a community working group (CWG) to work directly with SFMTA staff on developing the future traffic calming and bicycle friendly vision of Holloway Avenue. In addition to the open invitation at the community meeting, an invitation letter was sent to Holloway Avenue residents requesting their participation in the working group. At this time, the SFMTA has identified members for the community working group and is scheduling the first meeting for late April. The CWG plans to meet twice over the next two months to develop a draft proposal which will be presented at another community meeting later this year.
The Holloway Paving Project is due for completion by July of this year. Currently, paving has been completed on Holloway Avenue between Ashton Avenue and Harold Avenue. Paving is scheduled for Holloway Avenue between Ashton Avenue and De Soto Street on April 6th, 2011. Paving between De Soto Street and Junipero Serra Boulevard will begin at a later date to accommodate additional work in the area. This paving project will eliminate the trial chicane and restore Holloway Avenue to pre trial conditions. Your cooperation and patience are appreciated during this construction period. Please keep in mind that parking regulations will be restored in coordination with paving and will only come into effect as block segments are paved. Please pay additional attention to parking regulation signs during the duration of the paving project and visit this site again for future updates.

NO PARKING 9AM to 6PM
• Holloway Avenue, north side, between Ashton Avenue and Head Street
STREET CLEANING FRIDAY 9AM-11AM

Meeting Minutes and Items
Kick-Off Meeting Flyer (May 15, 2007)
Holloway Avenue is a bicycle route between San Francisco State University and City College of San Francisco. The street could be made into a “Bicycle Boulevard” which improves safety for bicyclists and helps slow traffic, which improves everyone’s safety. For more information about Bicycle Boulevards, watch this video about the bike boulevards in Berkeley. (Requires Adobe/Macromedia Flash Player) Design elements such as diverters or partial road closures are more common in Berkeley and are considered as "last resort" designs in San Francisco. The video does NOT represent a design plan for Holloway Avenue, but is shown for information purposes ONLY.
