$16.3 Million Jefferson Streetscape Project

In October, Mayor London Breed and District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin took part in a groundbreaking ceremony for the second phase of the Jefferson Streetscape Improvements Project.

Located in the busy Fisherman’s Wharf area and spanning three blocks on Jefferson Street from Jones to Powell Streets, the $16.3 million project will include wider sidewalks, new lighting, new landscaping, and increased seating and bicycle parking. The street itself will be narrower and will, according to the city, “include textured paving to help calm traffic.”

Peskin said the project was “the culmination of over a decade of effort” to keep Fisherman’s Wharf a popular destination for locals and visitors. He said the result will be “a model pedestrian promenade.”
