28 19th Ave Rapid Proposal Approved by SFMTA Board of Directors
On Tuesday, July 7, the SFMTA Board of Directors voted to approve the 28 19th Ave Rapid Project! This project will enhance pedestrian safety along one of the City's High Injury corridors, improve service reliability for the 28/28R 19th Ave, and is one of many corridors that comprise Muni Forward's Rapid Network.
The capital improvements approved by the Board are anticipated to reduce travel time by 20%, and include 49 pedestrian bulbs, 21 transit bulbs, stop consolidation and stop optimization. These upgrades will complement a planned service expansion for the 28R 19th Ave Rapid, expected to go into effect in the next year.
With the project approved for implementation, next steps include detailed design through summer 2016, construction following through 2018, and a street repaving in summer 2018.
