Temporary Transbay Terminal – Public Hearing on Parking and Traffic Changes
|January 27, 2008||Posted by jamie under Transbay Transit Center||
Sorry for the lack of postings this past week … this personal blog hobby of mine had to take a backseat to my job.
I noticed a public hearing posting on one of the lightpoles that may be of interest to you (or maybe not). The hearing is in regards to proposed parking and traffic changes related to the Temporary Transbay Transit Center sitting between Folsom, Main, Howard, and Beale Streets in the Rincon Hill neighborhood. Read the particulars of the proposed changes online – about half way down the page.
The public hearing happens this Friday, February 1, 2008 at 10:00 a.m. at City Hall in Room 416 (Hearing Room 4). This is the public’s opportunity to voice their opinions (granted, it is probably a slam dunk done deal, but I don’t want to discourage you from voicing your opinion anyway) on parking and traffic changes that will be in effect until approximately December 31, 2014. If anything, I wish I could attend to beg that they set the traffic lights up around the temporary terminal’s four corners so that pedestrians have an exclusive period of time each traffic signal cycle to do their street crossings without worries of any vehicular traffic legally coming through the intersection (like they have set up at O’Farrell and Stockton by Macy’s, for example). Maybe some other pedestrian safety items could be tossed in there.
