Silver Terrace Traffic Calming Project

This project was made possible through the efforts of Supervisor Chu.

Silver Terrace Traffic Calming Proposals Developed! 

After nearly 6 months of community planning work, a group of local residents and City staff have developed traffic calming proposals for Silver Terrace. The proposals for the area are shown on the map below. Twenty-six local residents attended a community meeting October 14th at the Bayview Police Station hear about and discuss the traffic calming proposals. City staff reviewed the project and showed current proposals (see the presentation) before opening the floor to discussion and questions. Attendees were very supportive of the traffic calming effort and there were only two instances of opposition to individual proposals for Ledyard Street. 
Next Steps

The SFMTA will continue to collect resident comments through October 26, 2010. If the current level of support continues, staff will finalize the traffic calming proposals and legislate them through the City and begin applying for construction funding. Once funding is acquired, staff will begin implementing traffic calming measures. Some traffic calming measures will also rewquirea  local resident vote on the impacted block. If you are impacted by one of these measures, for instance if a speed hump is posed on your block, you will receive a ballot in the mail, and will be asked to vote for your preference.
