Cesar Chavez Streetscape Improvement Project Update Meeting

From SFBC:

The SFMTA has just announced changes to the long-awaited community-based design for Cesar Chavez between Bryant Street and Hampshire Street. Caltrans, the Stated Department of Transportation, is now requiring an additional vehicle travel lane on Cesar Chavez between Bryant Street and York Street, forcing the loss of on-street car parking on the south side of the street in that section. Attend a community meeting to hear more about how those decisions were made and ask questions of the City team. Visit our Cesar Chavez pageor email Neal@sfbike.org if you have any questions.
