45th and Lincoln Intersection Improvements [NTIP Capital]

View the project on MyStreet

PROJECT Background

The intersection of 45th Avenue and Lincoln Way serves as a gateway to the popular Boat Playground within Golden Gate Park. Though many people reach this and other destinations within the park by foot, the intersection lacks pedestrian-friendly amenities. 

In March 2018, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) began installing improvements at the intersection, including high visibility crosswalks, painted safety zones, a continental crosswalk on the south leg and an extended painted median.

Near-term improvements include painted safety zones and medians as well as work on crosswalks


At the request of District 4 Supervisor Katy Tang, Neighborhood Transportation Improvement Program (NTIP) funds will be used to implement further improvements at the intersection of 45th Avenue and Lincoln Way that improve pedestrian safety and accessibility to and from Golden Gate Park. The painted safety zone on the north end of the intersection will be converted into a raised concrete bulb-out, complete with three new curb ramps and a relocated water basin. Following the bulb-out's completion, a new crosswalk will be installed on the east leg of the intersection. These improvements will provide pedestrians with additional space to walk on the park edge.

Long-term improvements include further crosswalk enhancements and converting the painted safety zones to concrete bulb-outs

The SFTMA has communicated with the public about this project through the District 4 mailing list and open house events. Staff will have regular and continuous contact with Supervisor Tang's office throughout the project.
