A message from SFMTA:

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is planning to move forward with a project that is expected to involve the 3rd Street and Townsend corridors (adjacent to Oracle Park). The name of the project is the “3rd Street Quick-Build Project” and is focused on delivering improved safety for transit riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Staff from the City and SFMTA have asked that we pass along information about the project as they have been conducting an outreach program over the last few months.

3rd Street is on the City’s Vision Zero High-Injury Network and the 3rd Street Quick-Build Project project aims to improve bike network connectivity and make changes for pedestrian safety. The specific area that this project focuses on includes the 3rd Street corridor from the San Francisco Bay Trail to Townsend Street. This project will establish a two-way separated bikeway on the east side of 3rd Street between Lefty O’Doul/3rd Street Bridge and Townsend Street, providing a protected link for cyclists between the Bay Trail and Townsend Street, with connections to The Embarcadero. The scope of the project includes upgrading existing bike facilities, curb management changes, and pedestrian safety improvements with the goal of delivering transportation safety and comfort on the project corridor for all users. The project will actively analyze collision patterns on the corridor and propose designs that address safety issues for future improvements.

A “quick-build project” are traffic safety improvements that can be installed relatively quickly and are intended to be evaluated and reviewed shortly upon construction. The design and construction of these quick-build treatments would be delivered completely by SFMTA and City staff. The staff of SFMTA spent recent weeks conducting a door-to-door outreach program to inform neighbors about the project. Below are two resources to learn more about the project. If you have any questions related to the project or the extensive outreach efforts, please contact Elizabeth Chen at SFMTA by email ([email protected]) or phone (415-646-2328).
