Project Details, History or Features

After years of collaboration between city agencies and community partners, the Inner Sunset Streetscape Improvement Project was constructed from 2017 to 2019. The project aimed to improve N Judah service, beautify the Inner Sunset neighborhood and make our streets more livable, vibrant and sustainable. 

The project consisted of transit safety improvements for people walking, sewer work, landscape improvements, electrical work, water line replacement and street paving. This work was completed along Irving Street, from Arguello Boulevard to 19th Avenue, 9th Avenue from Irving Street to Judah Street, and 10th Avenue from Irving Street to Judah Street.

Additionally, the SFMTA and Public Works improved the streetscape for the existing transit bulbouts in Cole Valley at Carl and Cole streets, and Carl and Stanyan streets.
