District 3 Supervisor Aaron Peskin joined Mayor London Breed and other local leaders Oct. 22 for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the second phase of the Jefferson Streetscape Improvements Project. Stretching on Jefferson Street from Powell to Hyde Streets, the $16.3 million project included pedestrian and bike safety improvements such as widened sidewalks, new lighting and landscaping, expanded seating, and changes to slow vehicle traffic.
Peskin welcomed the effort’s completion. “While battered by the pandemic over the past year and a half,” he said, “Fisherman’s Wharf continues to be an iconic San Francisco destination that welcomes visitors from across the globe, helps drive our local hospitality industry economy and generates jobs for San Francisco and Bay Area residents. The completed waterfront promenade stands ready to welcome visitors just in time for the holidays.”
