Teresita Boulevard 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.
Residents on Teresita Boulevard submitted a traffic calming application to the SFMTA expressing interest in reducing speeds and improving pedestrian access while also improving aesthetics where possible. Working with residents and the Miraloma Park Improvement Club, a traffic calming plan was created for the Teresita Boulevard corridor. See the Teresita Boulevard Final Traffic Calming Plan (PDF), the Funding-Phasing Plan (PDF).
As of April 2011, the following components of the plan have been implemented:
• A speed hump was installed on the 400 block of Teresita
• A speed radar sign was installed at the northern intersection with Marietta Drive to inform southbound drivers of their speeds
• A raised island was constructed at the northern intersection with Marietta Drive to slow turns onto this street. A tree will be planted at this location.
• Channelizing islands were installed to tighten turns and reduce speeds at the Bella Vista intersection. Crosswalks were relocated to locations with better visibility. (Bella Vista Intersection October 17, 2008) (PDF).
• Crosswalks were installed at the intersection of Foerster and Teresita.
• Two channelizing islands were constructed at the intersection of Teresita and Bella Vista to tighten the roadway for vehicles. Crosswalks were re-striped for increased pedestrian visibility. A third island is being designed to shorten the crossing distance for pedestrians and to provide some landscaping opportunities.
• Also note that a speed hump for the 300 block of Teresita was rejected via balloting of residents on that block
The traffic island that will be constructed on the east side of the Bella Vista intersection that will slow traffic heading up the hill and also serve as a rain garden that will accept storm water runoff and have low landscaping. Coordination with the Department of Public Works and the Public Utilities Commission is ongoing for this project. Curb ramps at the Bella Vista crosswalks will be also be constructed in 2009.
