Market Street to Ban Private Vehicles in Coming Years

Once again we start the week talking about construction, and projects in the works. That might be because construction is taking place all over the City, and San Francisco will emerge in a few years as a very different place. Fingers crossed, all for the better!

Hoodline reported last week that significant changes are coming to Market Street. We’ve heard about this for years, but it looks like construction could start in late 2018 or early 2019.

The $604 million¬†Better Market Street¬†project is set to bring pedestrian, bicycle, and public transportation improvements to 2.2 miles of one of the City’s busiest streets, between Octavia Boulevard and the Embarcadero.

Once the project is completed, plans include restricting private vehicles from certain portions of the street. Market between 10th Street and the Embarcadero could only see commercial vehicles, buses and the historic F-Line streetcars.
