Project Update - January 2021

Thanks for your interest in the Safer Taylor Street project. 

Quick Build Project Evaluation 

In the summer of 2019, SFMTA implemented Quick-Build improvements in advance of the larger streetscape project to help bring us closer to meeting the City’s Vision Zero commitment to eliminate all traffic related fatalities and severe injuries. 

The evaluation team looked at several key metrics to evaluate the Safer Taylor Quick Build Project including vehicle speeding, vehicle travel time, and conflicts at key crossings. Overall, our intersection treatments (turn pockets, painted safety zones, and a turn signal at Ellis) have yielded higher rates of yielding to pedestrians by drivers and fewer close calls, while the lane reduction has curtailed severe speeding on the corridor (30+, 40+ mph).

Streetscape Project Update 

Wider sidewalks, improved lighting, and other streetscape elements on Taylor Street between Turk and Ellis are on the way! The streetscape project was advertised on November 30, 2020 and bids by contractors are due on January 13, 2021. Construction is anticipated to start in mid-2021, and project staff will be reaching out to businesses and organizations along the project area in January-February.
