Leavenworth Quick-Build Project
Thanks to all who participated in the Leavenworth Quick-Build open house. The virtual open house is now closed. Please stay tuned for more information about the public hearing and project approvals.
Stemmed from the community’s demand for increased investment and broader solutions for traffic safety in the Tenderloin neighborhood, the SFMTA has committed to two 2020 quick-build projects in the neighborhood on Leavenworth Street and Golden Gate Avenue, with further community discussion on future potential quick-builds on additional Tenderloin streets.
The SFMTA is currently undergoing a process to implement a quick-build project on Leavenworth Street from McAllister to Post streets. Leavenworth is on the city’s high-injury network or the 13 percent of streets that account for 75 percent of severe traffic injury collisions and fatalities.
Quick-build projects are intended to include low-cost materials, such as paint and posts to make impact safety improvements that can be installed by city crews at a much faster rate. As part of the citywide Vision Zero Quick-Build policy, all quick-build projects will undergo a thorough evaluation over a 24-month period to ensure that project goals are being met. This also serves the opportunity to make iterative tweaks to project design to ensure that the safety improvements work better for all who travel on the corridor.
Stay tuned for ways to get involved!
