Polk Streetscape Design

Project Overview

Ocean Avenue is a key pedestrian, bicycle, and transit connection between the Balboa Park BART and Muni Station, Balboa Park, San Francisco City College Main Campus, Lick-Wilmerding High School, Phelan Loop Muni terminal, and the Ocean Avenue commercial district. 

The Ocean Avenue Corridor Design project will:

  • Identify streetscape improvements that can be implemented in the near term on Ocean Avenue from Manor Drive to Phelan Avenue with funding that has been allocated from the Road Repaving and Streets Safety Bond (Prop B)
  • Develop a longer term vision and implementation plan for Ocean Avenue from Phelan Avenue to San Jose Avenue. 

A significant amount of planning and study has been done for the Balboa Park area and Ocean Avenue, including circulation studies, design concepts, conceptual engineering, and initial recommendations. This project will build on the analysis and recommendations of previous efforts, including:

This project is an interagency effort of the San Francisco Planning Department, the San Francisco Department of Public Works, and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

Conceptual design for Ocean Avenue between Manor Drive and Phelan Avenue 

In 2011, San Francisco voters passed the Road Repaving and Streets Safety Bond. Funds from this bond have been allocated toward the planning and construction of Ocean Avenue from Manor Drive to Phelan Avenue. Following completion of the conceptual design, the Department of Public Works will begin preparing this portion of the project area for construction. A more detailed schedule will be announced in July 2014.
