Safer Market Street Community Meeting #2

From SFMTA:

Please join SFMTA at our second communitiy meeting for the Safer Market Street project. The meeting will be held in the Ghiradelli Room of the Hotel Whitcomb. Staff will be on hand to explain the impacts of this project, which include turn restrictions onto Market Street and extended transit-only (red paint) lanes. As part of the Vizion Zero policy, the changes proposed by this project will improve the safety of traveling on Market Street. 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.
