Eyes on the Street: SFMTA Restores Two-Way Traffic on Ellis

Posted By Aaron Bialick On May 22, 2012 @ 2:30 pm In District 6,Tenderloin,Traffic Calming | 8 Comments

The SFMTA last week restored two-way traffic on four blocks of Ellis Street, from Polk to Jones Streets. It’s the final phase of a project that also converted two blocks of the adjacent Eddy Street last month [2],¬†bringing humane traffic speeds to what used to be highway-like, one-way arterial streets.
