Safer Market Street Community Meeting #1

From SFMTA:

As part of the Vision Zero project, SFMTA is implementing turn restrictions onto Market Street which will decrease the number of private vehicles driving along this corridor. The focus area, a five-block expanse between 3rd Street and 8th Street/Hyde Street, is where an overwhelming number of traffic-related accidents occur. This community meeting will explain why these changes are being made. A map with the proposed restrictions can be found in the Safer Market Street Community Meeting Notice. SFMTA is still considering locations of new loading zones around the area, and meeting attendees are welcomed to provide their feedback on where best to place them.

The SFMTA will be developing new wayfinding signs to assist visitors and drivers while navigating the Market Street area.  Attendees will have the opportunity to view  the various designs being considered and assist in decision process.
