San Francisco’s Sunday Streets program will make its debut in the Western Addition this weekend.
The event, which shuts down streets to automobile traffic and opens them up for walkers, bicyclists, joggers and anyone else not in a car, will last from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Sunday.
Large portions of the Western Addition neighborhood will be shuttered to car traffic, with the Sunday Streets route connecting Japantown’s Peace Plaza to the Panhandle. Golden Gate Avenue will be the site of the longest street closure, with the artery closed from Laguna Street to Baker Street. Portions of Fillmore Street, Post Street and Grove Street will also be closed.
This weekend’s event will be the eighth Sunday street closure in 2010. There is one more program scheduled, Oct. 24 in the Tenderloin, this year.
