Final Project Improvements Starting Construction Fall 2024

Share this:

Following outreach and community feedback in Fall 2019 and Winter 2020, the final plan was presented at an SFMTA Public Hearing in July 2020 and included sidewalk widening for new transit bulbs, daylighting, and changes to the San Francisco Bike Network. 

Key portions of the project that have been completed include: 

  • Daylighting across the corridor at 34 locations 
  • Painted safety zones added at 13 locations  
  • Constructed temporary transit bulbs at 6th and 8th avenues  
  • Installed speed radar signs at two locations: westbound between 16th and 17th avenues and eastbound between 38th and 39th avenues  
  • Improved pathway at 22nd Avenue providing access into Golden Gate Park  
  • Updated walking speed for the traffic signal at Fulton and Stanyan streets to increase crossing time for people walking 
  • Relocating the inbound (eastbound) bus stop at Park Presidio from the near (west) side of the intersection to the far (east) side. 

Additional funding for the project was identified in September 2021 with the help of State Assemblymember Phil Ting, who helped secure $1.6 million from the California budget to implement transit and safety improvements on Fulton Street between Arguello Boulevard and 25th Avenue. 

Next Steps 

The final piece of this project is the construction of six bulbs at 10th, 8th, 6th avenues and at Arguello Boulevard. These bulbs will narrow the crossing distance, slow turning vehicles and improve visibility for people walking in addition to speeding up the 5 Fulton and 5R Fulton routes. 

We expect construction to start in the fall 2024, beginning with the Arguello Boulevard bulb.
