A Crosswalk at Judson and Foerster, Finally

After years of requests from local residents for a marked crosswalk at the intersection of Judson Avenue and Foerster Street–where cars routinely speed–one has finally been installed. The crosswalk was planned as a result of D7 Participatory Budget proposal for Judson Avenue improvements, which included daylighting at this intersection. The last year has also seen sewer work, ADA ramps, and repaving along Judson.

Have your say: Slow Streets in Sunnyside

[UPDATE Dec 19, 2020: Survey closed. See the results of the survey here.]

SFMTA’s Slow Streets program aims to make more socially distanced, covid-safe outdoor space available in neighborhoods, and has been implemented in many other areas of the city. The program has yet to come to a street in Sunnyside, Ingleside, or any other south-central district. For the next phase of the program, Sunnyside’s Hearst Avenue was chosen. Hearst is already the bicycle route through the neighborhood, which coordinates with the Slow Streets program aim of encouraging non-car use of the street.

Right now, SFMTA is taking your feedback about Hearst Ave. as a choice for the program. To learn more about what this would mean for the neighborhood and to give your feedback via a short survey, visit this page:
