About the Marshall Elementary School Safe Routes to School Project
This project was made possible in part by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority through a grant of Proposition K Local Transportation Sales Tax funds.
Caltrans awarded the Marshall Elementary School Safe Routes to School Project to the San Francisco Department of Parking and Traffic in 2004 to help improve several intersection crossings around the school surrounding the school. The project emphasized the crossings immediately adjacent to the school at the intersection of 15th and Capp Streets. Due to the sudden high cost of construction materials in recent years, the original plan to install more sidewalk extensions (also known as bulb-outs) along other walking routes to Marshall Elementary School was scaled back. What was constructed was a gateway treatment at the intersection of 15th and Capp Streets for both streets to narrow down the street and warn drivers that this was a school zone.
Additional traffic calming measures are planned for the area as part of the Minna-Natoma Traffic Calming Project now in development. In addition, plans for further traffic calming on Capp Street are also being studied.
Overall, these improvements have been well received by the school and neighborhood and helped create a better walking environment to the school from the surrounding neighborhoods. The project was completed in 2010.
