Sloat Skyline Intersection Alternatives Analysis
The Sloat Skyline Intersection Alternatives Analysis looks to improve the overall safety where Sloat Boulevard/HWY 35 intersects with Skyline Boulevard & 39th Avenue. Sloat serves as a major east-west connector from West Portal to Ocean Beach and is the unofficial southern border of the Outer Sunset. The primary goals of the project include:
- Improving safety for all road users
- Increasing visibility of pedestrians and reducing intersection conflict points
- Improving or maintain transit and vehicle circulation at the intersection
- Considering ways to use the space in the project area to showcase landscaping improvements, storm water management, or to beautify the intersection conditions.
This project will identify options to make the intersection a more inviting, safe and comfortable experience for all users.
This project is made possible by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority through a grant of Proposition K Local Transportation Sales Tax Funds.
Safety at the intersection of Sloat Blvd, Skyline Blvd and 39th Ave in the Outer Sunset is unsatisfactory. From 2008-2012:
- 6 people injured in traffic collisions at the Sloat/Skyline intersection
- 46 people injured in traffic collisions within a quarter-mile of the intersection
- 2 reported deaths within a quarter-mile of the intersection since 2014
Existing intersection conditions include:
- 2 crosswalks
- 4 Muni stops for the 18, 57 and 23 lines
- Bike lanes to the west of the intersection and sharrows to the east
- A four-way stop, accompanied by two slip roads and two turn pockets
- A speed limit of 35MPH, 5-10MPH greater than other high-use corridors throughout the city
In Fall 2017, SFMTA and San Francisco Public Works partnered to hold five outreach events to gather community members' concerns and perceptions about existing conditions at the intersection of Sloat and Skyline. These observations will inform the technical study evaluating the intersection. If you would like to share your observations about the intersection, you can complete a walking tour of the intersection and record your observations in the online survey.
