Irving Streetscape Improvements Project
The Irving Streetscape Improvement Project extends from 19th to 27th avenues in the City’s Outer Sunset district (map). Irving Street is the local commercial district for the surrounding residential neighborhood. The renovation will provide a safer and more inviting environment for pedestrians, motorists and transit riders. The streetscape project is joint with sewer replacement, curb ramp upgrades, and road repaving from 19th Avenue to the Great Highway.
**Project Update - May 2017**
Construction for the streetscape section of the project (19th to 27th avenues) is nearly complete! The contractor finalized the road repaving before Thanksgiving 2016, and is currently scheduling final items, some of which have recently been completed.
Completed work includes:
- Planting of the Tristanias and Brisbane Box trees (added to the project by the Board of Appeals)
- Curb ramp installations and road repaving on Irving Street from 30th Avenue to the Lower Great Highway
Remaining work for the streetscape includes:
- Installation of decorative crosswalks at 20th, 22nd and 27th avenues
- Irving Street gateway columns in the new bulbouts fronting the 22nd Avenue Produce Market and Salon De Hong Kong
- Connection of new LED streetlights between 19th and 22nd avenues
- Sewer work, paving and curb ramp work on 45th Avenue from Lincoln Way to Lawton Street (will be complete by July 2017)
- Small changes to the SoMa Stones at 22nd and 25th avenues. The overall amount of stones will be reduced and some will be replaced with round planters that will increase greening and provide a new activation for the bulbouts.
