Welcome to the 13th Street Safety Project

Welcome to the 13th Street Safety Project! 13th Street sits on San Francisco’s Vision Zero High Injury Network and is one of the corridors with the highest numbers of serious and fatal collisions.

In a recent five-year period, 99 collisions occurred in the project area between Valencia Street and Folsom Street. Over one-third of reported collisions involved bicyclists or pedestrians, and the most common collision factors were red signal violations, high speeds, and unsafe left turns. The 13th Street Safety Project aims to:

  • Improve traffic safety and comfort for all who travel on the 13th Street corridor between Folsom Street and Valencia Street
  • Reduce the number of conflicts between those who walk, bike and drive along this corridor
  • Increase the connectivity of San Francisco's bicycle network

Do you have insights to share about traveling along 13th Street? Click here to take a survey and share your experience. Your feedback will inform street designs for improving traffic safety for all users of 13th Street and increasing the city’s bicycle network connectivity. This survey is open through November 21, 2021.

The project team will be concurrently reaching out to local stakeholders this Fall while developing design concepts, and share proposals in early 2022.
