    Masonic Streetscape Project

    The Masonic Avenue Streetscape Project was initiated to improve safety for people walking, biking, taking transit and driving on Masonic Avenue between Geary Boulevard and Fell Street. Construction began in June 2016 and is expected to be completed in late 2017. The project includes wider sidewalks, better lighting in the crosswalks, raised bike lanes, and enhanced Muni stops. SFMTA estimates that 167 parking spaces will be eliminated upon completion of the project.
