Brannan Street Safety Project set for Public Hearing on August 17, 2018
Monday, August 6, 2018 - 2:00pm
Thank you for your interest in the Brannan Street Safety Project.
Brannan Street is on the city’s High-Injury Network, where 13 percent of city streets account for 75 percent of San Francisco’s traffic-related injuries and fatalities. The Brannan Street Safety Project will increase safety for all people on the corridor by reducing the number of travel lanes (four lanes to three lanes), installing bike lanes to separate bikes from cars, and better organizing the intersections. To view proposed block-by-block changes, please visit the project website: www.sfmta.com/brannan.
The SFMTA will be holding a public hearing on Friday, August 17 to gather further public input on the proposed changes, which include:
- Bike lanes in both directions to provide dedicated space for people biking
- Traffic lane reduction to redistribute roadway space to all road users
- Center two-way left turn lane to allow flexibility for vehicles to turn left at alleys or driveways without blocking a travel lane
- Better designed intersections to provide a new separated left-turning lane and pedestrian safety improvements, such as high visibility continental crosswalks, leading pedestrian intervals, and advanced limit lines for more visibility at intersections.
- Traffic signal timing changes that will enhance safety and improve the efficiency of traffic flow
If you would like to comment on these proposed changes, you may attend the public hearing or submit comments in writing before the hearing:
