Newsom Tracker: A stroll down Market Street

Mayor Gavin Newsom will stroll down Market Street on Friday, possibly to admire how few cars are on the road following recent traffic adjustments.

What the mayor will be doing there is slightly a mystery. The Mayor’s Office has called this a “wait and see” event. But the language promoting the event in Newsom’s schedule provides enough clues:

At 5 p.m., Newsom will “tour new Market Street improvements and launch new arts and economic development initiative.”

He will walk from 1231 Market St. (by Eighth Street) and continue to 989 Market St. (by Sixth Street)

This could mean that the Market Street changes, which have been occurring on a trial basis, are here to stay. Or maybe not?

As they said, we’ll have to wait and see.
