Guerrero Street Quick-Build Project

Project Introduction

As part of our Vision Zero Quick-Build Program, the Guerrero Street Quick-Build project will implement a variety of pedestrian safety treatments along Guerrero Street between Market Street and 20th Street.

Guerrero Street is a north-south roadway in the Mission District that includes residential and retail activity. It is part of San Francisco's Vision Zero High Injury Network, or the 12% of San Francisco streets which experience 68% of the city’s severe traffic injuries and fatalities.

The Guerrero Quick-Build project seeks to improve pedestrian and traffic safety by using tools from our pedestrian improvements toolkit, including advanced limit lines, continental crosswalk upgrades, daylighting, and painted safety zones at select locations.

Project Details, History or Features

What is a Quick-Build Project?

Quick-build projects are adjustable and reversible traffic safety improvements that can be installed relatively quickly. Unlike major capital projects that may take years to plan, design, bid and construct, quick-build projects are buildable within months and are intended to be evaluated and reviewed shortly upon construction.  

Typical quick-build improvements can include:  

  • Paint, delineators, and signs
  • Parking and loading adjustments  
  • Traffic signal retiming

Project Benefits

Improvements within the project area will increase safety for all users of Guerrero Street, whether they drive, walk, or roll. The focus of this project is to reduce conflicts between vehicles and pedestrians. The proposed improvements will support the City’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating traffic deaths.

Project Evaluation

SFMTA quick-build projects are evaluated through our Safe Streets Evaluation Program. The Safe Streets Evaluation Program will analyze the project before and after implementation to review outcomes and determine design effectiveness. Evaluations may inform future modifications to this street.
