Eddy Street Two-Way Conversion Project

Project Overview

Eddy Street at Hyde after one-way to two-way street conversion

Eddy Street has one of the highest concentrations of pedestrian collisions and injuries in San Francisco. From 2011 to 2016, there were a total of 67 pedestrian collisions with 87% of those collisions resulting in an injury or fatality. In response to Tenderloin community members' concerns, Eddy Street between Leavenworth and Mason streets, is proposed to be converted from a one-way to two-way street. This conversion is intended to calm traffic throughout the neighborhood making Eddy Street more inviting to walk, bike, and explore.

Eddy Street has one of the highest concentrations of pedestrian collisions and injuries in San Francisco. From 2011 to 2016, there were a total of 67 pedestrian collisions with 87% of those collisions resulting in an injury or fatality. In response to Tenderloin community members' concerns, Eddy Street between Leavenworth and Mason streets, is proposed to be converted from a one-way to two-way street. This conversion is intended to calm traffic throughout the neighborhood making Eddy Street more inviting to walk, bike, and explore. 

Since converting Eddy Street (between Larkin and Leavenworth) and Ellis Street (between Polk and Jones) from one-way to two-way streets in 2012, the SFMTA has met with neighbors, community groups, and representatives of the Tenderloin community to receive feedback and understand roadway concerns. As a result, only Eddy Street from Leavenworth to Mason streets is proposed to be converted into a two-way street at this time. 

Project Background

In 2007, the San Francisco Transportation Authority conducted the Tenderloin-Little Saigon Community Transportation Study. Transportation needs, opportunities, and recommendations were identified through continuous community engagement. The study noted traffic calming along Eddy and Ellis streets as a community priority. In 2012, Eddy (between Larkin and Leavenworth) & Ellis (between Polk and Jones) were converted to allow vehicle travel in both directions.
