A new Vision Zero map was recently released, showing Monterey Boulevard as a high-injury corridor. For Sunnysiders familiar with the three major injury crashes involving pedestrians and a cyclist last year, this will come as no surprise.

San Jose Avenue Closure

by Heather World
Forwarded from the Department of Public Works:

OVERNIGHT WORK – San Jose Avenue Concrete Barrier Installation
SF Public Works and SFMTA are scheduled to begin installing concrete barriers along the expressway portion of San Jose Avenue to better delineate the traffic and bicycle lanes. The work will be performed overnight due to the large volume of traffic and to help ensure the safety of staff installing the concrete barriers. Installation work will commence on Sunday night July 30, 2017.

The typical work days/hours will Sunday night to Friday morning from 8 PM to 5 AM. Installation of the concrete barriers will take about 2 weeks to complete.

Installation of the barriers will occur along the expressway portion of San Jose Avenue in the Northbound direction between St. Mary’s Ave. and Randall St. and in the Southbound direction between Randall St. and the Wilder St. exit.

Thank you for your patience as we complete these improvements. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Public comments in response to the presentation of the three competing Balboa Reservoir development project are now available online, at the Balboa Reservoir Community Portal. A summary has yet to be posted.
