  • Chinatown on Broadway at night

Broadway Chinatown Streetscape Improvement Project

Broadway in Chinatown is one of the most recognizable districts in the city. With neighborhood-serving retail, schools, large-scale housing developments, and distinct historic character - great volumes of people travel to and through daily. The Streetscape improvement project will provide a safer and more pleasant walking experience, with new paving, streetlights, street trees, and street furnishings inspired by the unique history of the neighborhood.

The work will convert the current arterial to two lanes of traffic in each direction. Bulb-outs, raised crosswalks, and special intersection treatment will improve pedestrian visibility. New street trees, bike sharrows, seating, and new street lights will enhance the public realm design.
