The 14th Street Safety Project was previously presented at the February 17, 2022 BPAC meeting, and the 65% design plans were previously reviewed and discussed at the Jan. 27, 2022 BPAC Infrastructure Committee meeting

This project will:

  • Create a calmer and slower 14th Street with 1 lane of vehicle traffic in each direction
  • Maintain on-street parking and loading, and add parking spaces to the area by adding angled parking spaces on the south side of 13th Street
  • Install a fully protected bicycle lane, separated from vehicle traffic by raised concrete islands
  • Shorten pedestrian crossings and retime signal lights to give pedestrians more time to cross and improve intersection safety
  • Install a fully-raised extended sidewalk (with raised bike lanes) for the entire block face behind the Family Bridges/Hong Fook Center to allow for paratransit and senior loading directly on a level surface (the bike lane on other blocks will be roadway-level)
  • Install fully-raised, extended sidewalks (with raised bike lanes) on the entire block from Webster to Harrison to upgrade the pedestrian experience on this core commercial block
  • Upgrade transit stops with new boarding areas, canopies, seating, and lighting
  • Install new landscaping and street trees
  • Install new sidewalk lighting
  • Repave 14th Street
