Second Street Improvement Project Community Meeting

From SF DPW:

The San Francisco Department of Public Works, Municipal Transportation Agency, and City Planning invite you to the third community meeting for the 2nd Street Improvement Project. The project extends along 2nd Street from Market to King. The key elements of the project are pedestrian improvements, a bicycle facility, streetscape enhancements and repaving. As you may know, the community selected the one-way cycletracks option for the bicycle facility.  The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the selected design option in detail. We will present the community survey results, the proposed conceptual design, and project schedule.  Plenty of time will be allocated to questions and answers at the meeting.

Please RSVP by 11/27 at:  http://www.eventbrite.com/event/4793969893#

The meeting location is accessible to persons using wheelchairs and others with disabilities. Assistive listening devices, materials in alternative formats, American Sign Language interpreters and other accommodations will be made available upon request. Please contact Kevin Jensen, DPW’s Accessibility Access Coordinator, at 415-557-4685 or by email at kevin.w.jensen@sfdpw.org. Providing at least 72 hours notice will help to ensure availability.
