The Balboa Streetscape Improvement project extends from 34th to 39th Avenue in the city's Outer Richmond District. Balboa Street serves as a vital commercial corridor for the surrounding residential neighborhood. The renovation will provide a safer and more pleasant environment for pedestrians, motorists, cyclists and transit riders with the installation of special traffic calming features.
Improvements include sidewalk bulb-outs at key intersections, revised traffic and parking layouts on two blocks, light fixture upgrades, and a unique gateway marker at entrances to the commercial district. For more information, download the Balboa Streetscape Improvement Project Factsheet (PDF).
