Welcome to the Transbay Howard Streetscape Improvement Project!
The Transbay Howard Streetscape Improvement Project is an effort to implement permanent, high-quality streetscape infrastructure along Howard Street between 4th Street and The Embarcadero to improve the sense of safety and travel experience of all roadway users. This project builds upon traffic safety improvements recently installed through the Howard Street Quick-Build Project and designs from the SF Planning Department’s South Downtown Design + Activation (Soda) Plan.
Over the past five years, there have been more than 90 reported collisions on Howard Street between 4th Street and The Embarcadero that resulted in injury. Once the Transbay Howard Streetscape Improvement Project and the Folsom-Howard Streetscape Project are approved, designed, and implemented, people traveling by bike will have a continuous and protected bike lane on Howard Street in both directions from The Embarcadero to 11th Street. In addition to the bikeway, this project will also implement other pedestrian, greening, and transit improvements throughout the corridor.
Throughout the planning phase, SFMTA staff will work with local community stakeholders to determine priorities and needs. There will also be opportunities for the community to provide direct input to inform the project design.
