SFMTA officials praise completion of St. Francis Circle

One of the most complicated intersections in San Francisco is now a little less confusing.

On Thursday, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency announced the completion of a $26 million project to improve traffic, transit and pedestrian conditions at St. Francis Circle, a widely used interchange near the West Portal neighborhood.

The project included the replacement of 30-year-old light-rail tracks, repaving, pedestrian access improvement and traffic signaling changes to ease congestion at the intersection, which incorporates five thoroughfares and two light-rail lines.

Since May, residents in the neighborhood have dealt with lane closures, transit interruptions and construction noise. Thursday marked the formal end of work at the location.
