SFMTA Open House: San Jose Avenue Road Diet


From SFBC:

A safer San José Avenue

Please join us at a community open house organized by the SFMTA. They will share information on the Northbound San José Avenue and I-280 Off-ramp Road Diet Pilot Project.

SFMTA Staff will be available from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM at Glen Park School to guide members of the public through the project’s purpose, need and implementation. Updates will be provided on historic collision data and traffic observations, as well as next steps.

The goals of the Northbound San José Avenue & I-280 Off-Ramp Road Diet Pilot Project are to:

  • Reduce traffic speeds on northbound San José Avenue by reducing the number of traffic lanes on the I-280 off-ramp and on San José Avenue
  • Increase safety for those who walk, drive and bike along the corridor
  • Upgrade the existing northbound bicycle lane with a wider, more separated bike lane (where space allows)
