Caltrans awarded the San Francisco Community and Monroe Elementary Schools Safe Routes to School Project to the San Francisco Department of Parking and Traffic (DPT) in 2004 to help improve several intersection crossings around the school and upgrade some traffic signals surrounding the school. The plan was borne out of one of the first neighborhood traffic calming projects in San Francisco - The Excelsior Traffic Calming Project. Neighbors got together to look at the entire area between Silver Avenue, Mission Street, Geneva Avenue and MacLaren Park to plan out how to improve traffic safety in the area. The area around these 2 schools was identified as one of areas of concern. The bulb-outs and traffic signal improvements were constructed to address these concerns and have been well received by the schools and neighborhood

The Department of Public Works and DPT worked together to coordinate both efforts which greatly improved the street condition for all users of Excelsior Avenue. Improvements to the school area included:
