Main Street Streetscape Project
The SFMTA Board of Directors will review this project at their regular meeting on July 18 beginning at 1:00pm.
The Main Street Streetscape Project is part of a larger neighborhood‐wide community planning initiative called the South Downtown Design + Activation Plan (Soda). Soda seeks to create vibrant streets and revitalize open spaces, while encouraging active transportation choices, as the East Cut neighborhood grows. The Main Street Streetscape Project would establish a protected northbound bicycle facility through the neighborhood and widen sidewalks for an enhanced pedestrian experience. Project limits are Main Street, from Folsom Street to Market Street.
The project proposes:
- A protected northbound bike lane
- Widened sidewalks
- Transit boarding islands that enable buses to serve customers without crossing the path of bicyclists
- Reconfigured passenger and commercial loading zones
- Streetscape elements including trees, lighting and seating
