Wiggle improvements coming soon

SFMTA has updated us about the plans for the Wiggle Bicycle Route improvement project.

The construction contract has been officially awarded, and SFMTA expects to give the notice-to-proceed to the construction contractor in mid-May.  Construction will conclude by the end of December.

The bulbout construction at Fell/Scott will occur this summer.  The extra-large bulbout at Scott and Fell will act as a traffic diverter, requiring southbound automobile traffic on Scott to turn on Fell, and preventing westbound traffic on Fell from turning left onto Scott.

Traffic signals on Divisadero were retimed in January between O’Farrell and Haight Street.  This improvement will help make Divisadero flow more smoothly so that it becomes the preferred cross-town route for drivers who use Scott Street or other parallel residential streets.

The intersection of Scott and Page will incorporate textured paving on the pavement to highlight pedestrian crossings and encourage slow traffic through the intersection.
