SFMTA Approves 19th Avenue Rapid Project
“Last week, Muni’s Board of Directors approved the 28 19th Avenue Rapid Project, which calls for multiple capital improvements that will boost pedestrian safety and shorten travel times along the 28/28R bus line by 20 percent. The project is part of Muni Forward, a system-wide initiative created to improve transportation infrastructure for ‘core routes serving nearly 70 percent of all riders.’
The project approved last week will create 49 pedestrian bulb-outs along 19th Avenue, as well as 21 “transit bulbs” for passenger boarding and disembarking. As part of the work, SFMTA plans to consolidate several stops and expand service for the 28R-19th Avenue Rapid next year. After the project’s design phase is completed next summer, construction work will roll out through 2018, culminating in a street repaving that summer.” View the full article.
