City of San Francisco's Pedestrian Safety Construction Project Begins on Van Ness Avenue; Traffic Delays Expected

A two-month construction project to be conducted by the City of San Francisco as part of its pedestrian safety program is expected to cause traffic delays on Van Ness Avenue (Hwy. 101) between Fell and Clay streets in San Francisco.

The project on Van Ness Avenue, which began this week, is expected to be completed by the end of November 2000, and includes the installation of lighting at crosswalks and modifications of median islands to improve pedestrian safety.

For the duration of the project, one northbound lane of Van Ness Avenue will be closed between 6 a.m. and
3 p.m. and one southbound lane will be closed between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. each week, Monday through Friday.

Suggested alternate routes are Franklin Street for northbound motorists and Gough Street for southbound motorists.
