This project was made possible in part by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority through a grant of Proposition K Local Sales Tax Funds.
Concerns on Kirkham Street between 9th and 19th Avenues include high traffic speeds and lack of safe crossings for pedestrians. Suggestions from the public for improving Kirkham include STOP signs, crosswalks and bike lanes. The planning process so far has included public meetings and development of a traffic calming plan. At the end of 2005, in a meeting with residents, we discussed a plan to narrow the wide-open roadway with median islands and bike lanes. The medians would both discourage speeding by narrowing the lane widths as well as help pedestrians cross the street. The medians could also be planted to improve the aesthetics. There was some interest in larger islands that would allow more area for planting and narrow lanes for longer sections of Kirkham. The trade-off would be that access would be limited to some driveways.
