Forty Spot Improvements Coming Your Way

SFMTA Biking Stencil_Feature

As part of Vision Zero, just last week the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) committed to prioritizing 40 bike and pedestrian infrastructure improvements in areas with a high injury rate.

These spot improvements were chosen based on data from the Department of Public Health, which analyzed crash data to identify high injury corridors and intersections for bicyclists and pedestrians. While timelines will vary, the SFMTA has committed to getting all forty of these done in 24 months, which means there will be lots of exciting new projects in the works! Thanks to the SFMTA for prioritizing these important fixes.
