Though we're taking the rest of the week off for the holiday, we thought you'd be excited to see these photos, which represent the first pavement treatments for the new Calm the Safety Zone projects [1] on Market Street, meant to improve pedestrian safety by re-enforcing the separations between motorists and pedestrians. As we reported two weeks ago, this treatment is the next phase after the stop bars were moved back [2] from the crosswalks and fits into the larger rubric [3] of the Better Market Street Initiative [4].  Thanks to Dennis Lee at the Great Streets Project [5], who snapped these photos at 4th Street and Market.
