Slow Streets - Inner Sunset

Project Introduction
Update 02/18/2021: Due to prolonged internal review, the project team will now attend the March 16, 2021, SFMTA Board of Directors meeting to present the Phase 4 streets for Slow Streets designation. The program team has finished reviewing community feedback from initial outreach earlier this year. A summary of the feedback, corridors moving forward in the process, and next steps are available in the document below: 

Slow Streets in the Inner Sunset - Outreach Summary

The goal of the SFMTA’s Slow Streets program is to provide more space for socially distant essential travel and exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the city, nearly thirty corridors have been implemented as a Slow Street. For more information on the Slow Streets program, click here

The program is designed to limit through traffic on certain residential streets and allow them to be used as a shared space for people traveling by foot, scooters, skateboards, and bicycles. On these Slow Streets, signage and barricades have been placed to minimize through vehicle traffic.  

  • Slow Streets are temporary restrictions to through traffic.  
  • Residents can still drive to their homes, receive deliveries, be picked up or dropped off, and more.  
  • These are not full street closures, and city services like trash pickup and street sweeping will remain.  
  • On a Slow Street, the space in the roadway is shared between people on bikes or on foot, and people driving or riding in cars.
