From SFMTA, an update about the work they are doing regarding pedestrian safety upgrades on Sunnyside streets. Read the previous update from SFMTA here.

From SFMTA Engineer Philip Louie:

We have been working on the list of Sunnyside area traffic and safety improvements that were listed in the participatory budget application. As part of the safety improvements, we recommend “daylighting” the intersections which pulls back parked vehicles from the intersection by installing a short red zone between the stop line and parked car. This increases the visibility of pedestrians for drivers as they approach the intersection. This can affect parking in the area, and the streets you requested increased safety on are no different.

We are now presenting you with our recommended places where additional daylighting would be beneficial to increasing safety. Most of the red zones will be pushing the cars back from the intersection to increase visibility. For example, on Monterey, we recommend extending the red zones between the yield triangles and the crosswalk at Colon, Valdez and Hazelwood in the westbound direction. This will be an additional 15 feet of red zone which is less than the length of a parking space. However, there are several parking spaces that we recommend removing: three on Hearst, two on Congo, five on Monterey.    (more…)
