8. Presentation, discussion and possible action regarding the St. Francis Circle Track Replacement Project. (Al Herce)
Al Herce, engineer, Sustainable Streets, reviewed the traffic, pedestrian and bicycle movement configuration of the St. Francis Circle Track Replacement Project. The upgrades included arrow signalization to address eastbound Sloat traffic turning right onto Junipero Serra when LRVs are present; signal cycle enhancements for pedestrians and bicycles; video monitors for LRV violations; solutions to discourage tagging of the traffic and the Muni signal boxes; relocating the outbound 23 Monterey Route transit shelter at St. Francis; and planting trees. He recalled that the EMSC suggested closing or signalizing the right turn lane at Sloat Boulevard onto Junipero Serra Boulevard. During the closing of the right turn lane at construction, there were conflicts of right turning motorists with transit, as well as complaints about traffic back ups. A significant number of vehicles make right turns onto Sloat Boulevard. Therefore, the project will include signalizing right turns at the St. Francis Circle intersection.
