Lower Great Highway Pedestrian Improvements Project

SFMTA.com/LowerGreatHighway
Project Introduction

The goal of the Lower Great Highway Pedestrian Improvements Project is to increase pedestrian safety and comfort along Lower Great Highway by implementing near- and medium-term pedestrian improvements and traffic calming measures. The project was born out of community concerns around pedestrian safety, particularly when Upper Great Highway is closed.

Near-Term Measures

The SFMTA Board of Directors approved the near-term measures on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. Implementation of the near-term measures is expected later this year.

Together, the revised near-term proposal would remove 14 parking spaces over the entire 2-mile corridor.

Medium-Term Proposal

The SFMTA Board of Directors approved the near-term measures on Tuesday, July 16, 2019. 

To see a map of the coming medium-term improvements, click here. The medium-term project includes:

  • Four speed tables at Irving, Ortega, Santiago, and Ulloa streets
  • A median island at Lawton Street
  • Stop signs on side streets where they intersect Lower Great Highway (for traffic on Moraga, Ortega, Ulloa, Cutler, and Wawona; no stop signs are proposed for traffic on Lower Great Highway itself)

You can see an overhead diagram of the speed tables and median island here.
