San Jose Avenue Safety Improvement Community Meeting

From SFMTA:

The SFMTA, Supervisor Scott Wiener and the College Hill Neighborhood Association invite you to an an upcoming community meeting on Monday, February 3 to discuss proposed safety improvements for San Jose Avenue between Monterey Boulevard and Randall Street.

The City, after many years of working with Caltrans and other stakeholders, would like to present a proposal aimed at maximizing safety for all users of the street.  Many vehicles travel faster than the posted speed limit of 45 miles per hour – this project aims to bring vehicle speeds at or below 35 mph.

Join your neighbors to hear more about this proposal and how the City plans on collecting data to evaluate the success of the project.
