Project Update 9-11-2017
Work began on the project in late June and is scheduled to be complete in late December 2017.
The contractor is currently working on the raised crosswalk at the Page & Pierce streets intersection. During construction of the raised crosswalk, the contractor will need to close a portion of the Page/Pierce intersection. We will need to allow the concrete ample time to cure before allowing vehicle traffic on to it. During this phase of work, vehicles traveling north along the 200 block of Pierce Street will not be allowed to enter the Page Street intersection. Residents living on the 200 block of Pierce Street will need to exit the block via the Haight Street intersection. Vehicles and bicycles traveling East/West on Page Street will be allowed to continue through the Pierce Street intersection however they won't be allowed to turn South on to Pierce Street. Bicyclists are encouraged to travel south on Scott Street toward Haight Street during this time, rather than turning east on Page Street to access southbound Pierce Street. The raised crosswalk at this intersection will take about a week to complete. We plan to re-open the Page/Pierce intersection to full roadway on Monday September 18, 2017.
On Monday September 18, 2017, the contractor is scheduled to begin similar raised crosswalk work at the Pierce and Waller intersection. This work will also take about a week to complete. During installation of the raised crosswalk, the contractor will close a portion of the Pierce/Waller intersection. Vehicles and bicycles traveling South on the 100 block of Pierce Street will not be allowed to enter the Waller Street intersection. Residents living on the 100 block of Pierce Street will need to exit the block via the Haight Street intersection. Vehicles traveling East/West on Waller Street will be allowed to continue through the Pierce Street intersection however they'll be prevented from turning North on to Pierce Street. Bicyclists are encouraged to continue west on Waller Street toward Scott Street during this time, rather than turning north on Pierce Street, or continue north on Steiner Street through the Waller Street intersection toward Haight Street. The plan is to re-open the Pierce/Waller intersection to full roadway on Monday, September 25, 2017.
San Francisco Public Works is partnering with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency to improve stormwater management and walking and biking conditions to the Lower Haight and Alamo Square neighborhoods. The project include curb ramp upgrades, bioretention area landscape installations, asphalt paving, permeable unit paver installations and drainage work.
The goal for the Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor is to create a route that is comfortable for all who walk, bike and live along the wiggle. Through bulb-outs, raised crosswalks and improved left turns for bicyclists, the completed project will ensure that pedestrians feel safe crossing the street, minimize congestion from motor vehicles and encourage slow, safe speeds from all roadway users. The project is funded by the 2011 Road Repaving and Street Safety Bond, the Proposition K Gas Tax and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Wastewater Bonds.
