Safety improvements planned for Folsom, Harrison streets

Two SFMTA open houses this week will kick off the Folsom-Howard Streetscape Project, a new infrastructure safety project designed to manage SoMa’s growing population.

According to the SFMTA by 2040 SoMa will experience a 212 percent increase in residents and a 140 percent increase in workers.

The project will cover transit improvements for bicycles, pedestrians, cars and buses on Folsom and Howard streets. Landscaping, open space and sidewalk amenities such as benches will also be covered.

Two identical open houses are being held in order to maximize the amount of people able to provide feedback and thoughts on this project. The first will take place on Thursday Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. and the second on Sunday Dec. 10 at 12 noon. Both will be held at the SoMa Recreational Center at 270 6th St.
