Page Street Neighborway Project
For information on the Page Slow Street – a related effort to manage vehicle traffic to improve safety for more vulnerable users – please visit the Page Slow Street page.
Public Works awarded a contract in August 2021 to contractor Michael O’Shaughnessy Construction for the implementation of the Page Neighborway Project. Construction is expected to begin in late 2021 and be completed by summer 2022.
SFMTA staff will be working with Public Works to provide advanced notice to affected stakeholders and regular updates as the project progresses. Revisit this page to learn the latest and/or sign up to receive email updates when new information is posted.
The Page Neighborway Project is an effort to make this important residential corridor a safer and more pleasant place to walk and bike to nearby parks, schools, and other destinations. Page Street is also identified on the San Francisco Planning Department's Green Connections Network, which means it is a priority corridor for landscaping and other greening opportunities where possible.
After a multi-year planning and outreach phase focused on the segment from Market to Webster streets, the project received SFMTA Board approval in late 2018. Improvements are planned at three intersections – Gough, Laguna, and Buchanan streets – and will include six sidewalk extensions (four of which will include landscaped rain gardens), as well as the city's first 'raised' or traffic-calmed intersection at Page and Buchanan streets.
The project costs approximately $2.5 million and is funded with a mix of developer impact fees, Prop AA funds, proceeds from the sale of Central Freeway parcels, and other SFMTA revenues. Ongoing maintenance for the landscaped rain gardens (also known as ‘green infrastructure’) will be provided by the SF Public Utilities Commission.
