L-Taraval Rapid Project Hearings on Oct. 6 and Nov. 7
The L-Taraval Rapid Project will soon be going before the SF Municipal Transportation
Agency’s (SFMTA) board of directors for final approval before construction
begins in 2018.
The full L-Taraval Rapid Project is designed to make Taraval Street safer and
more reliable, and includes rail track and overhead line replacement, water and sewer
line replacement, surface repaving, curb ramp upgrades, concrete boarding islands and
pedestrian bulb-outs, traffic signals, trees, landscaping and public art.
In March, the SFMTA rolled out roadway changes as part of its early implementation
phase of the project. This included new clear zones at train stops, new painted safety
zones at sidewalk corners, parking changes and a six-month boarding zone pilot
test, which includes some transit stop removals and new transitorily lanes.
There are two upcoming opportunities to weigh in on the changes proposed for Taraval
On Oct. 6, the SFMTA will conduct an Engineering Public Hearing in City Hall, Room 416,
beginning at 10 a.m. The hearing will only discuss time-limited parking on Taraval
Street and potential changes to stops at 17th, 35th and 44th avenues.
However, staff will not be presenting its final recommendations at the hearing. They will
present the full scope of what was intended for the original project for approval, which
is to ensure that any element of staff’s final recommendation will have gone through the
engineering public hearing process.
Final recommendations are tentatively scheduled to be presented at the
SFMTA hearing on Nov. 7, at City Hall, Room 400, at 1 p.m.
Comments about proposed changes can be e-mailed to LTaravalRapid@sfmta.com and
