Update on Quick-Build Project at “The Curve”We have clarified that the India Basin traffic calming project is going forward and will be larger than we defined earlier. SFMTA plans to execute a “Quick Build” project from Evans and Jennings, around the curves along Hunter’s Point Boulevard between Evans and Innes, and down Innes to Donohue. According to SFMTA, public outreach will begin again in July or August 2020 and will consist of a website, webinar or video meetings, online survey, and possibly small-group tours and small in-person office hours. Implementation has moved to Fall 2020. IBNA is closely following the Quick-Build project and will advise members of updates and opportunities for public input.
