We’re happy to announce four winners of the coveted San Francisco Streetsie awards that we’ll be honoring with online events sometime between now and the end of the year. This list of Streetsie winners includes:

  • OakDOT, for the roll-out and continued dialogue with communities for America’s first ‘Slow Streets’ plans

  • Scraper Bike Team, for the 90th Avenue redesign in Oakland

Congratulations to this year’s first batch of Streetsie winners. We look forward to celebrating with you all soon!

Note: this is not a replacement for any end-of-year honors that may be announced.
