Upper Haight Transit Improvement & Pedestrian Realm Project

Project Introduction

The project is a partnership between the SFMTA and the SF Public Works to make improvements to the Upper Haight that will enhance the safety and experience of the neighborhood’s character with transportation and street design changes.  The project spans half a mile on Haight Street from Stanyan to Central Ave and includes Muni Forward transit and pedestrain safety improvements, sewer replacement and upgrades, streetscape enhancements, pedestrian scale lighting, tree planting, curb ramps and bulb-outs, bus bulbs, traffic signal installation/replacement, and repaving of Haight Street from Stanyan Street to Central Avenue.  The scope of the work also includes sewer work on Masonic Avenue between Haight and Waller streets.  

Phase I included sewer replacement work.  Phase II that began on June 3, 2019 includes safety and streetscape improvements which is estimated to be complete by Fall 2021.  


  • Broke ground in September 2018, this civic improvement project will bring the Upper Haight (Haight between Stanyan and Central):

  • Sidewalk extensions that provide more sidewalk space, improve safety and shorten crossing distances for people walking; at transit stops provide more space for waiting and speed up boarding; improve visibility for people driving

  • Improved lighting including new pedestrian scale sidewalk lighting

  • New traffic signals

  • Signage for people navigating points of interest, transit and parking

  • Planters that both capture and provide infiltration for storm water runoff, new sidewalk trees and landscaping

  • Informal seating options that provide a place to rest for transit or just take in the sights.

During Construction

  • Street parking may be impacted while construction occurs on a block. In some cases, depending on the phase of work, street parking may not be possible on part of the adjacent block as we taper traffic lanes in order to accommodate the necessary work zone. Crews also may detour traffic to allow for a safe work zone. We kindly ask that motorists please plan ahead and allow more travel time during construction hours.
  • Please see the posted "no parking" barricade signs for exact work hours, days, and locations. Parking restrictions may vary per block depending on the scope of work.
  • Bus stops along Haight Street may be temporarily relocated while work occurs on the block. Please see signage at existing bus stop for details on any temporary bus stop relocation.
