Partial Closure Planned on San Francisco's Market Street

San Francisco's notoriously congested Market Street will soon see a lighter load of traffic, as officials roll out a pilot project that will ban private vehicles from the roadway.

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."
