Increase Sidewalk Size
The 17th Street Sidewalk between Vermont and San Bruno forces walkers to use the street when needing to pass folks coming from the opposite direction. Extending the sidewalk back to the pillars holding up the bridge will allow us to create at least a 9ft sidewalk.
Bulbouts at Corners
Once pedestrians arrive at the corners crossing the street can be a challenge, especially at Vermont Street where folks have exited the freeway and often are in a rush to get where they are going. That corner has been identified as a corner wiht high accident rates. To increase safety, the plan is to add bulbouts. This makes the corners more visible to cars and bikes and makes the crossing distance less.
