Judson Avenue daylighting completed; speed cushions to come

New red curbs designed to increase pedestrian safety on Judson Avenue at the Foerster and Gennessee intersections has been completed by SFMTA. This prevents cars and RVs from parking in such a way to block pedestrian visibility at intersections. The measure were approved a few months ago. Last week speed cushions were also approved for Judson for the blocks between Circular and Gennessee, further addressing this dangerous stretch where cars speed. The cushions will be installed sometime in the near future.
