On Tuesday, November 7th at Java Beach Café (2650 Sloat Blvd.), officials from Public Works and the San Francisco Municipal Tranportation Agency (SFMTA) will host a community coffee hour to discuss the future of the intersection at Sloat and Skyline boulevards.

Concerns for the intersection's fate focus on pedestrian, cyclist and auto safety, and possible ways to implement a traffic roundabout.

The need for a new intersection comes from a substantially larger design proposal—due to ongoing coastal erosion south of Sloat, the Great Highway will be closed there altogether and rerouted inland.

"Before a roundabout is proposed," according to a statement from District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang's office, "this study will find the safest and most efficient way to accommodate rerouting the Great Highway."

A reroute was recommended in the Ocean Beach Master Plan and is currently being studied through by SFMTA.

"The post-study outreach," Tang's statement continued, "will communicate the findings of the study, assessment of findings related to initial outreach and proposed recommendations."

In the meantime, residents are invited to provide feedback and hear more about the redesign Tuesday at Java Beach Café from 5-7pm.
