Frankly, I think it looks vastly better than it did before, and way better than Army Street ever looked in it’s long history of arterial awfulness. We also got some sexy new sewer pipes out of the deal, and a dedicated (though unseparated) bike lane. Yet I confess: I’m a sucker for long overdue infrastructure projects and decorative palm trees.
Now that we’ve endured several years of congestion in the cause of building of a better future, we’re all invited to participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony tomorrow, Wednesday January 29, at the new (and newly named) Si Se Pueda Plaza in front of The Palace restaurant, at the intersection of Mission, Chavez, and Capp Streets:
DPW will host a ribbon cutting for the completion of the Cesar Chavez Streetscape Improvement Project on Wednesday, January 29th, from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm. Please see the attached flyer and below for more information.
The newly designed corridor improves safety for people walking, taking transit, and biking on the street. The project also added greening, stormwater-management features and road repaving. Together, these improvements will enhance the neighborhood for many years to come.
