Construction is underway on the Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project!
The Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project is an effort to improve safety for people walking, biking, taking transit and driving on Masonic Avenue between Geary Boulevard and Fell Street. It will bring a variety of improvements to the corridor including, wider sidewalks, a new median, new paving, landscaping, raised bikeways, better lighting and upgraded sewer infrastructure.
For years, Masonic Avenue has been the site of many traffic-related injuries and the corridor is currently on San Francisco’s Vision Zero High Injury Network. This network represents 12 percent of San Francisco’s surface streets and is where injuries, including severe and fatal injuries, are most concentrated.
From 2009 to 2014, there were 113 traffic collisions on Masonic Avenue between Fell Street and Geary Boulevard. This includes 14 pedestrian collisions and 24 bicycle collisions, including two fatalities.
In 2008, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a redesign of Masonic Avenue. After an extensive community planning effort, the Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project received approval to move forward from the SFMTA Board of Directors, the San Francisco County Transportation Authority (SFCTA) Board of Commissioners and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC.)
