More Pedestrian Countdown Signals Come to Geary Boulevard in the Richmond – Hurray!

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Plus new road signs too, probably they’ll be more legible or something. But that’s a small thing compared with the installation of new signals.

Maybe fewer people will die on the mean streets of the Richmond District after we get all this new equipment. (How many peds got mowed over by cars in the Richmond District last year? More than you might think.)

Anyway, the new lights can’t hoit.


More Pedestrian Signals Coming to 19th Avenue in the Sunset

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Nowadays, it seems that every intersection on the 19th Avenue double fine zone in the Sunset District has either:

1. a dedicated pedestrian signal (with a countdown timer thrown in as a bonus), like this one on Ortega : or

2. evidence of recent work indicating that a pedestrian signal is a coming soon, like this one on Santiago.
