O'Shaughnessy / Bosworth 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.
The O'Shaughnessy / Bosworth Traffic Calming Project began in August 2005. Read the O'Shaughnessy/Bosworth Meeting Notes - 8/30/05 meeting (PDF), O'Shaughnessy/Bosworth Final Traffic Calming Plan (PDF), and the Funding-Phasing Plan (PDF)
A pedestrian refuge island was constructed at the intersection of O’Shaughnessy and Malta to assist pedestrians crossing the street at that intersection. That island has recently been removed as part of a paving project for the O’Shaughnessy corridor but it will be reconstructed as part of the paving project.
A new crosswalk and pedestrian island will be constructed on O’Shaughnessy at the intersection with Del Vale. The guardrail on the uphill side of the street will be opened up to allow pedestrians to cross at this location without the need to step over the guardrail.
Between Bosworth and Malta, a portion of the striped median will be opened up to allow for landscaping. Adjacent curb extensions will be constructed to narrow the lanes just uphill of where the housing begins on O’Shaughnessy. The intent is to create a gateway to let drivers know that there is a change from a mountain road to a residential area near a park. This work will take place as part of the paving project.
