Castro Street's traffic lanes will be narrowed in two blocks.

"Pedestrian-focused Castro Street block widening set for next year"

Two blocks of cramped sidewalk along San Francisco's iconic Castro Street will be swapping widths with the ampler roadway they run alongside.

The project was for years believed to be a pipe dream, wrote neighborhood Supervisor Scott Wiener in a letter in support of the changes to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

"Slated to start construction in January 2014 and last ten months, the final design concept for the Planning Department’s Castro Street Makeover project will be unveiled at a community open house tomorrow (May 14th) from 7 to 9 pm at 2278 Market Street.

The makeover includes the widening of sidewalks; addition of street trees, landscaping, and lighting; and improved intersection safety between Market and 19th Streets. Based on vetted design concepts and community input, expect the final plan to include the reconfiguring of the crosswalk at Castro and Market Street so that it is aligned with Jane Warner Plaza and bulb-outs on the corners of Castro and 18th Streets."
