At HANC's September meeting, representatives from DPW and SFMTA were on hand to answer questions about the two-year-long construction project planned along Haight street. Work may begin as soon as January 2018, but with the project not yet out to bid the start time may be delayed by a month or two.
All pavement between the buildings (sidewalks and roadway) along Haight from Stanyan to Central will be removed and replaced. New features added will include pedestrian bulb-outs at intersections to shorten the crosswalk, traffic lights at intersections which currently have stop signs, and new conduit for community wi-fi, and pedestrian scale lights. A number of trees are planned for removal either because they aren't thriving or because they currently interfere with bus wires.
