Page Street Neighborway

Project Overview

Page Street at Octavia Boulevard - woman and child walking in crosswalk

The Page Street Neighborway Project is a multi-phase effort to make the street a safer and more pleasant place to walk and bike to neighborhood destinations and nearby parks, and to provide landscaping opportunities where possible. The "Phase One" segment extends from Webster Street to Market Street, where approximately $1.5 million of developer impact fees is programmed to plan, design, and implement improvements consistent with the Market-Octavia Area Plan. Concept designs for this segment will be finalized in summer 2017, with start of construction anticipated in early 2019. Near-term improvements and pilot treatments may be ongoing through 2017 and 2018.

Check back soon for more resources and details of the project concept design proposal. For a summary of documented community issues and more about the Neighborway concept, please click the “Details” tab above.

Project Details

The Page Street Neighborway Project is a multi-phase effort to make the street a safer and more pleasant place to walk and bike to neighborhood destinations and nearby parks. Since the corridor is identified on the San Francisco Planning Department's Green Connections Network, the project also aims to provide landscaping and other greening opportunities where possible. 

"Phase One" of the project extends from Webster Street to Market Street, where approximately $1.5 million of developer impact fees is available to plan, design, and implement improvements consistent with the vision of the Market-Octavia Area Plan.The Project's "Phase 2" will extend from Webster Street to Stanyan Street (at the entrance to Golden Gate Park), but is not yet an active project. Planning and outreach activities for this segment are expected to start in 2018. 

What is a Neighborway?

Neighborway is the City of San Francisco's term to describe a residential street with low volumes of auto traffic and low vehicle speeds where bicycles and pedestrians are given priority over motor vehicle traffic (especially “cut-through” traffic). In other communities, similar streets and projects may be known as neighborhood greenways, people ways, bike boulevards, or green streets.

Residents of neighborway streets benefit from reduced vehicular traffic on their street and lower vehicle speeds, while adjacent neighbors who walk or bike to major parks, neighborhood open spaces, or who commute to nearby schools and beyond will benefit by having a calm, slow-traffic street on which to reach their destination.

As with other corridors, the Page Street Neighborway Project will investigate a variety of traffic calming and other measures to create a safe, comfortable, and useful neighborway, including but not limited to:

  • Speed humps, speed tables, and/or raised crosswalks
  • Traffic circles and median islands
  • Forced turns, turn prohibitions, or other circulation changes that allow bicycles and pedestrians to pass freely but divert car traffic to other routes (traffic volume management)
  • ADA accessibility upgrades
  • Sidewalk extensions or 'bulbouts' 
  • Sidewalk landscaping 
  • Signage, including for traffic safety and wayfinding
  • New, enhanced pavement markings and bike facilities

Project Schedule ('Phase One' Webster to Market Streets)

Initial public outreach and engagement activities for the Page Street Neighborway took place in 2015 and 2016 as part of the Octavia Boulevard Enhancement Project. Based on community input, near-term improvements including crosswalk daylighting and a new center-running bike lane for blocks west of Octavia Boulevard were implemented and/or approved.
