Engineering Public Hearing, March 6, 2015
Following two community workshops the Safer Market Street Project Team has incorporated public and SFMTA feedback and is submitting the proposed improvements for approval at the SFMTA Public Hearing and Board of Directors. The Project Team will be taking required legislation for the Safer Market Street Project to public hearing on Friday, March 6, 2015.
Market Street has four of the top 20 intersections for pedestrian and injury collisisions citywide, and the top two intersections for bicycle injury collissions. Safer Market Street is one of over 24 Vision Zero projects to be expedited to address the disproportionately high number of severe and fatal collisions along high-injury corridors such as Market Street. The proposed project would be constructed in late Spring 2015 between 3rd Street and 8th Street on Market Street and includes the extension of transit-only lanes, turn restrictions for private automobiles, new passenger and commercial loading zones, and changes to parking and loading to accomodate these proposals.
The SFMTA will hold a public hearing on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 10:00 AM, in Room 416 (Hearing Room 4), City Hall, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, San Francisco, CA 94102, to consider the proposed changes.
The purpose of traffic engineering hearings is for residents to express their concerns regarding the proposed changes on their streets. The SFMTA Board will make the final approval at a later date based on the outcome at the public hearing. Any interested parties are encouraged to attend.
Opinions on these proposed changes may be filed in writing prior to the hearing by email (email@example.com) with the subject line “Public Hearing.” Written opinions may also be transmitted to the Sustainable Streets Division via fax at 415.701.4737 or by mail: Engineering Public Hearing, Sustainable Streets Division, One South Van Ness Avenue, 7th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103-5417. Submitted opinions will become part of the official public record and will be brought to the attention of the person(s) conducting the hearing.
