From Walk SF:
Don’t Miss Your Chance to Make Second Street More Walkable
Your Voice is Needed
Second Street is an important street for walking, biking, transit, and could be a great Green Connection for SOMA. Throngs of people already head on foot to the ballpark for every game. The street desperately needs wider sidewalks, safe crossings, and protections from left-turning cars, especially cars cutting through the neighborhood to the freeway.Check out the new design
, with wider sidewalks (finally!) along both sides
(thanks to community and Walk SF advocacy!). Plus there are raised crosswalks at all the alleys, new crossings with traffic lights, a pedestrian head start at intersections, and no left turns (which are very dangerous for people on foot).
The design will calm traffic with separated bike lanes that will help narrow the roadway and reduce traffic speeds. The design could still use more greening and better buffers between cars and bikes. Come see what you think and speak up!
Attend the final community meeting where the SFMTA will present design plans for the Second Street Improvement Project from Market to King.
