Howard Streetscape Project
The Howard Streetscape Project area includes Howard Street, a westbound one-way street, that extends from 4th to 11th streets. Howard Street runs parallel to Folsom and Mission streets. The Moscone Convention Center, one of the largest traffic generators in the City, is located within the corridor and prior to the pandemic received one million visitors per year.
The project will address dire safety concerns on Howard Street that resulted in three fatalities on the corridor between 2014 and 2019. In total, 152 traffic collisions have occurred on the Folsom-Howard couplet over this time, placing the corridor on San Francisco’s Vision Zero High Injury Network, where 13 percent of San Francisco's streets endure 75 percent of the total severe and fatal traffic collisions. More than half of these collisions involved a person walking or biking.
