Alemany Boulevard (Ellsworth to Justin Drive/Congdon) Quick-Build Project

Project Introduction

Alemany Boulevard is a 40 mph westward roadway in the southeast quadrant of San Francisco, located just north of I-280. Alemany Boulevard is in the Bernal Heights neighborhood and connects Bayshore Boulevard and Mission Street.

The project area is comprised of diverse residential households, and open space such as St. Mary’s Recreation Center, Playground, Tennis Courts, Dogpark, and Alemany Farm. The Alemany Farmer’s Market is located just east of the project area.

The Alemany Boulevard (Ellsworth to Justin Drive/Congdon) Quick-Build Project builds upon our recently implemented east-west transportation safety projects Alemany Bikeway Project , Alemany Interchange Bike Lanes Project and our north and south transportation project Bayshore Quick-Build Project.

Evaluation Process

All SFMTA quick-build projects are intended to be evaluated through our Safe Streets Evaluation Program within the initial 24 months of construction. The Safe Streets Evaluation Program will analyze the project before and after implementation to review outcomes and determine design effectiveness. Evaluations will inform near-term modifications and a long-term design for this street. 

Project Outreach

A community engagement process is currently underway, and stakeholders will be informed during each step of the planning, legislation, and construction phases. Please subscribe to receive project updates via email or by mobile phone.
