These projects involve slowing cross-town traffic as it enters the city from the Golden Gate Bridge emptying onto Lombard and Chestnut. We have seen no studies of the cumulative effects of slowing traffic on these two streets located within 20 feet of each other.
We have witnessed major negative impacts on businesses all over town resulting from lane reductions, parking shortages and difficulty with pickup and deliveries, and servicing accounts. Some neighborhood merchants have experienced a 40% drop in revenues since the SFMTA completed their streets.
We invite you to send in your comments and show up at the SFMTA Board meetings to speak during public comment.
