Alemany Corridor Safety Project
With coordination and funding through the SFCTA’s Neighborhood Transportation Improvement Program (NTIP), Supervisor Safai has committed to identifying safety and accessibility improvements on Alemany Boulevard between Sickles Avenue to Rousseau Street.
The focus of the project will identify collision "hot spots" and recommend near, medium and long-term collision countermeasures to improve safety. The study will build on prior work by the San Francisco Planning Department, though the Excelsior-Outer Mission Strategy and SFMTA, and includes community outreach to confirm needs assessment and to collect feedback on design proposals.
Segments of Alemany Boulevard are on the city's High-Injury Network or the 13 percent of streets that account for 75 percent of severe and fatal traffic collisions. Over a five-year period between October 2014 to September 2019, there were 145 reported injury collisions, of which one was fatal. A large majority, about 80 percent, involved collisions between vehicles.
Through this planning process, the SFMTA will work with the community to determine near, mid and long term measures to improve safety on the corridor.
