Western SoMa alley improvements coming up for final approval

Update: The Western SoMa Neighborhood Transportation Plan was approved unanimously by the full Transportation Authority on March 27.

Our friends at the Transportation Authority are preparing to take the Western SoMa Neighborhood Transportation Plan through the board approval process. The report recommends traffic calming and pedestrian improvements to the alleys of Minna, Natoma, and Ringold Streets and signalized mid-block crossings of Seventh and Eighth Streets. You can read the complete plan by following this link.

This Plan was guided by significant input from community stakeholders, including the Western SoMa Community Plan Task Force and members of the public who were involved in two rounds of public outreach.

The Plan is the first step in a process to bring the improvements to fruition. Additional steps are necessary to secure funding and create engineering designs (see Chapter 5 for additional discussion of implementation).

The final report will be discussed at the TA’s March 20 Plans and Programs committee meeting at 10.30 a.m. and is scheduled for adoption by the full San Francisco County Transportation Authority later this month. For further information or questions about the report, please contact Chester Fung at chester.fung@sfcta.org.
