Cesar Chavez Street provides a gateway to the Mission District that residents can boast about.
Green infrastructure is installed along one mile of Cesar Chavez St., a main East-West artery along the Mission District’s south side. The redesigned Cesar Chavez Street features bioretention planters in curb bump outs, permeable concrete to help handle stormwater and pedestrian friendly features like safe crosswalks and traffic calming features.
The $11.6 million project injected new life into a formerly drab, all-concrete street scene and transformed that stretch into a showplace gateway into the city and a place for residents to walk and congregate outside. The project was constructed jointly between SF Public Utilities Commission and SF Department of Public Works.
