SFMTA sends this update on how they are implementing pedestrian safety improvements in Sunnyside, in part as a result of our Participating Budgeting grant from last year, but also due to the increased attention Monterey Blvd is getting since being identified as a High-Injury Corridor last year. Images added by SNA for illustration.
It’s time for an update on the progress of the Sunnyside area traffic and safety improvements were listed in the participatory budget application.
- The feedback on daylighting of intersections on Monterey Blvd, Hearst Street and Congo Street were mostly supportive of some parking loss to increasing pedestrian safety, so we are moving forward with this plan.
Work orders should be sent out in the next week or two with implementation within the next month.
- We do not recommend stop signs at Gennessee/Hearst and Congo/Mangels. Additional red zones as part of the daylighting will be installed. Continental crosswalks will be installed at Gennessee/Hearst.
