4:00 pm: Better Market Street Project Update (online)
Nov 12 –
The LightHouse is pleased to present an update via Zoom on the Better Market Street project, which has undergone some changes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us at 4:00 pm Pacific on Thursday, November 12, to learn about the changes from representatives of San Francisco Public Works and the SFMTA.
Notable developments include:
These changes mean that the sidewalks will only be for people walking and transit passengers no longer have to cross the bikeway to get to the sidewalk. Transit passengers will get to and from the center boarding islands at signalized crossings.
Each of these issues will be discussed in further detail. We hope you can join us. RSVP to Scott Blanks: SBlanks@lighthouse-sf.org.
