On Tuesday, a unanimous vote from the SFMTA Board of Directors approved the Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor Project, which has been in the works for more than two years.

As we noted this week, the project aims to increase walkability, decrease traffic and reduce storm water waste around the Wiggle. Bulb-outs on several sidewalk corners, a raised sidewalk at Steiner and Hermann, permeable pavement and rain gardens, and traffic restrictions on Scott Street are all on the way. 

The final plan, which can be found here, does not restrict left turns going southbound on Divisadero at Haight—a win for LoHaMNA and community members who campaigned against this element of the project.

Construction is slated to begin in September 2016 and continue for one year.
