13th Street Safety Project

Project Introduction

13th Street is an east-west street that borders between the South of Market neighborhood and Mission District, running underneath the elevated Central Freeway. On the ground level, 13th Street serves motor vehicle traffic traveling on and off the Central Freeway. Locally, this corridor connects travelers to and from the Mission District, Design District, Mission Bay, and South of Market neighborhoods. The 13th Street corridor is part of the Vision Zero High Injury Network, which are the 13 percent of streets that disproportionately account for 75 percent of severe and fatal traffic collisions.

The 13th Street Safety Project aims to: 

  • Improve trafic safety and comfort for all who travel on the 13th Street corridor betweem Folsom Street and Valencia Street
  • Reduce the number of conflicts between those who walk, bike and drive along this corridor
  • Increase the connectivity of San Francisco's bicycle network

Previous efforts on 13th Street and Division Street improved walking, biking, and driving between Townsend Street and Folsom Street. The 13th Street Safety Project will further expand the bike network by extending protected facilities on 13th Street west and connect to Valencia Street. The scope of the project will be informed by preliminary analysis from the SF Planning Department’s Market-Octavia Plan Amendment (the Hub) and the SF County Transportation Authority’s SoMa Freeway Ramps Intersection Safety Study.
