On the agenda for San Francisco’s Municipal Transportation Agency Board of Directors and Parking Authority Commission this afternoon, the approval of the proposed $18 million “Boulevard” redesign of Masonic Avenue between Geary and Fell.
As proposed, all on-street parking on Masonic within the project area (approximately 167 spaces) and two lanes of traffic will be removed while a landscaped median, 1.2 miles of raised cycletracks (bike lanes separated from car traffic) and bus bulbs will be added along with new streetscape greening and lighting.
In addition, the Target coming to the corner of Masonic and Geary will fund a new traffic signal at the intersection of Masonic and Ewing Terrace, “providing a new signalized crossing for pedestrians.”
The full Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project, for which the funding has yet to be secured, will take at least four years to complete once the ground has been broken.
