The partial street closure will begin September 29.

"Signs will soon go up along Market Street telling drivers of the mandated turns. But it won't be a full street closure by any means: Muni buses, delivery vehicles and taxis can continue using the street like normal.

The new traffic patterns will be tested for at least six weeks and would have to be approved by the Municipal Transportation Agency's governing board to be made permanent."
