After engaging with the community to shape proposed changes approved in September, early enhancements are coming to make Taraval safer for everyone who depends on it, including the Muni riders who make 30,000 trips on the L Taraval each day. This is all part of a much-needed rehabilitation on Taraval Street that will replace infrastructure like the worn rails, overhead wires and sewers, as well as repave the entire street.
Starting in January 2017, you’ll begin to see a variety of changes along the L Taraval – from new paint on the street to enhanced signage reminding drivers to stop for loading Muni passengers. We appreciate all of the great input we’ve received during this process. All of these improvements are there to make you, and other pedestrians, safer!
The Unity Plaza will be an approx. 210-by-65 foot public open space west of the City College Terminal. The fully accessible plaza will be landscaped with trees and plants, and include benches, pedestrian lighting, special artistic pavement, a domed climbing structure and photography displays depicting the history of the area. The space will serve as an attractive pedestrian link between Muni's K Line stop on Ocean Avenue to its south, the expanded City College campus to its north and the new City College bus terminal.
