Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project

Project Update · January 2016

Getting Ready for Construction

After a multi-year,  community-driven planning and design process to create a safer and better Masonic Avenue, the city is pleased to announce that construction on the Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project will begin in mid-2016! San Francisco Public Works will be the managing the construction phase and is in the process of hiring a contractor.

This project will bring a variety of new features to Masonic Avenue, including a landscaped median, better lighting, an improved sewer system, raised bikeways, bus stop enhancements, and a new public plaza at Geary Boulevard. These enhancements are all in support of San Francisco’s Vision Zero goal of eliminating all traffic deaths in the city.

If you have any questions about construction, please contact Alex Murrillo at Alex.M.Murillo@sfdpw.org or 415.558.5296.

Parking Management

The SFMTA’s recent launch of Residential Permit Parking Area Q has helped keep parking available for local residents and businesses–additional evaluation data will be available in the coming months.

To offset some of the parking being repurposed by the Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project, the SFMTA is evaluating nearby streets for opportunities to increase on-street parking supply and will be engaging the community for feedback. These efforts are in addition to the 20 spots already added on Fulton between Central and Baker as part of the separate Muni Forward 5 Fulton Rapid Project.

If you have any questions about potential added parking near Masonic Avenue, please contact Maurice Growney at Maurice.Growney@sfmta.com or 415.701.4549.
