Chavez Street Design
The Cesar Chavez Street Design Plan is a detailed design effort to re-envision Cesar Chavez Street from Hampshire to Guerrero Streets in the Mission District. The outreach and design process, conducted between May 2008 and May 2010, identified ways to make Cesar Chavez Street a safe, pleasant, and attractive corridor for people, bikes, and transit that unifies, rather than divides, the neighborhood. We began by identifying a vision and goals and quickly identified three design options for the Cesar Chavez Street corridor. The community selected a preferred design, which included a widened and planted center median, bike lanes, corner bulbouts, new street lighting, and drought tolerant landscaping.
The Cesar Chavez Streetscape Improvement Project is now moving toward implementation by the Department of Public Works. Construction is anticipated to begin by mid 2011.
