Project Information


Second Street Improvement factsheetdownload_pdf

The 2nd Street Improvement Project extends from Market Street to King Street, stretching from downtown San Francisco to the SOMA district. The community, through the recently adopted East SOMA Area Plan, identified 2nd Street as a primary pedestrian, bicycle and transit thoroughfare and a ‘green connector’ for the neighborhood. This project will work towards implementing that vision by transforming 2nd Street into a pleasant multi-modal corridor that improves safety and access for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit as well as drivers.

In accordance with the San Francisco Bicycle Plan, the project will provide space for bicycles along the entire length of 2nd Street, from King to Market Streets. Streetscape improvements may include special crosswalks and new infill street trees along the entire corridor, as well as a pedestrian refuge space at the South Park Avenue intersection and expansion of an existing pedestrian refuge at Harrison Street. The project also includes roadway resurfacing, concrete curb reconstruction, the installation of ADA-compliant curb-ramps, and upgrades to the traffic signal system.
