PROJECT DETAILS

The Mission Street Excelsior Safety Project is a community project that will focus on pedestrian safety, Muni reliability, and business enhancements. Through near-term and long-term improvements, the project will make it safer and more pleasant to walk, shop, and live along Mission Street from Geneva Avenue to Alemany Boulevard and along Geneva Avenue from Mission Street to Moscow Street.

Mission Street and Geneva Avenue are part of San Francisco’s High Injury Network, where 75percent of the severe and fatal collisions happen on 13 percent of city streets. Over the last five years, three community members were killed and 262 people were injured in collisions in the project area. Additionally, on some blocks of the project corridor, the eight Muni lines that serve the area have average speeds below 5mph. The project will seek to address these issues, while supporting the over 300 existing storefronts along Mission and Geneva streets.

The project’s goals are to:

  • Increase safety for all users of the corridor, especially people who walk, bike, & take transit
  • Improve transit reliability on the most used bus routes in the neighborhood
  • Enhance the business district, making it more pleasant to shop

PROJECT TIMELINE

  • Fall 2018 - Ongoing: Outreach and planning for street improvements
  • Late 2018: Public review of conceptual design
  • Spring 2019: Project refinement
  • Late 2019: Improvements presented to SFMTA Board
