Funding for traffic-calming, signal upgrades to be discussed

Over $700,000 in funding for pedestrian signal upgrades and traffic calming measures will be up for preliminary approval Wednesday.

The Citizens Advisory Committee of the San Francisco County Transportation Authority will vote recommending the allocation, which includes $508,000 for traffic-calming plans. Of that total, $160,000 would go toward improvements on several streets in Visitacion Valley, which has been plagued with traffic collisions and incidents of speeding on residential roads.

All funding for the plans would come from The City’s transportation-tax dollars. The SFCTA’s full board, which is comprised of The City’s Board of Supervisors, will have to give final authorization on the funding before it is released.
