New Crosswalk Proposed For Fell and Gough

The SFMTA will hold a hearing tomorrow to discuss adding a crosswalk at the intersection of Fell and Gough Streets.

The crosswalk would be on the west side of the intersection, crossing Fell. Currently that is the only one of the four potential crossings that lacks a crosswalk.

Tomorrow (Friday), the Sustainable Street Division of the SFMTA will hold a hearing to consider the proposed crosswalk, as well as a number of other transit-related projects around the city. The hearing is scheduled for 10am in Room 416 of City Hall.

Along with the crosswalk, a few other changes are being considered for the intersection. They include establishing tow-away zones at the intersection and removing three nearby parking spots.

According to the SFMTA, tomorrow's hearing will allow for public feedback before a decision is made:

"The purpose of traffic engineering hearings for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Sustainable Streets Division is for residents to express their concerns regarding the posted parking and traffic changes affecting their streets. At the hearing, the public hearing officer, after reviewing the items and listening to residents, will make a decision as to whether the items are approved or not. Any interested parties are encouraged to attend."

If you can't attend the hearing, but live or work nearby and would like to share your opinion, you can do so by emailing mailto:sustainable.streets@sfmta.com with the subject line "Public Hearing."
