Vicente Street Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Project

Project Overview

Image of bicycle lanes on Ortega Street in the Sunset that are similar to the planned bike lanes on Vicente Street

The SFMTA has developed a proposal to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety on Vicente Street from 17th Ave to Lower Great Highway. Bike lanes would be added to the existing wide travel lanes to better define the space for all road users and promote a more orderly flow of traffic. In addition red zones would be added at select corners to increase visibility of pedestrians waiting to cross the street. Also, in response to a request from some in the community, parking spaces would be re-aligned along two blocks to increase the number of spaces.

Project Details

The SFMTA has developed a proposal to increase bicycle and pedestrian safety on Vicente Street from 17th Ave. to the Lower Great Highway.

The SFMTA's proposed safety improvements [pdf] include the following:

Bike Lanes

  • Nearly every block on this stretch of Vicente will get striped bike lanes in both directions, similar to those on Ortega and Cabrillo streets, to make it more comfortable to bike on

“Daylighting” at Street Corners

  • Certain street corners in front of schools on Vicente will get “daylighting” - the removal of parking spaces at corners to make it easier for everyone on the street to see each other at intersections, especially in the crosswalk.

Re-Aligned Parking Spaces

  • In response to a petition from neighbors, parallel parking spaces would be converted to perpendicular spaces on the south side of Vicente, between 44th and 46th avenues. This will add a net addition of five parking spaces the rest of the changes taken into account.
     
  • Existing “front-in” angled parking spaces would be converted to “back-in” angled spaces on the south side of Vicente, between 39th and 40th avenues. Back-in angled parking makes it easier for drivers to see other traffic as they leave parking spaces.
