Please stay tuned for the next release of Envista in 2017.


What is Envista?

Envista is a web-based information system that allows organizations and individuals with an interest in the public-right-of-way to communicate and coordinate more efficiently and effectively. Envista provides visibility and real-time insight into street projects and activities for smart management of utility-excavation projects and street events -- an essential tool to optimize street performance, reduce costs, and minimize environmental impact.

The City, local utilities, state and federal agencies, and private contractors can plan and manage their activities more effectively when they have a common understanding of what each other is doing, when and where. And the public can find out what's going on in the neighborhoods where they live, work and visit.

With this easily navigable and visually rich mapping platform, San Franciscans have access to information on planned and current projects and street activities in their neighborhoods.

The anticipated construction start and end dates are for excavation projects scheduled within the next 6 months. These dates are estimated dates to be used for planning and coordination purposes and are subject to change.
