Page Street is being considered for inclusion in the ongoing Slow Streets Program. The SFMTA is also proposing new traffic diversion at Page Street and Divisadero Street to improve safety for people walking and bicycling.
The SFMTA Board of Directors authorized San Francisco’s Slow Streets Program on December 6th, with 16 initial corridors approved for inclusion. After over two years of outreach and evaluation showing strong support and significant growth in people walking and bicycling, the SFMTA recommends adding Page Street to the ongoing Slow Streets Program. Approval would make permanent all existing measures, including piloted freeway-access restrictions and bikeway upgrades east of Webster Street and slow-streets measures westward to Stanyan Street.
The proposal also includes adding traffic diversion at Page Street and Divisadero Street. It would require eastbound and westbound vehicle traffic on Page Street to turn right onto Divisadero Street, prioritizing walking and bicycling. Northbound and southbound left turns from Divisadero Street would be restricted at all times, reducing delays for Muni and crosstown traffic.
