NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is proposing to implement transportation safety improvements on Evans Avenue between Cesar Chavez and Newhall streets in San Francisco as part of the Evans Avenue Quick-Build Project (proposed project). The proposed project would create safer conditions for pedestrians and cyclists along the project corridor. Specifically, one travel lane would be removed in each direction (road diet) to upgrade a Class III bike route to Class II and Class IV bike lanes; the lane reduction would also decrease traffic speed along the project corridor. Additional pedestrian safety improvements include installation of advance limit lines, upgraded pedestrian crossings to continental crosswalks, traffic signal improvements to give pedestrians a head start to cross the intersection, daylighting (red curbs/no parking at intersection approaches) for visibility, and painted safety zones at intersection corners throughout the project corridor.
