The SFPUC celebrates with Leland Avenue residents and merchants the completion of the Streetscape Project
The 5th annual Leland Street Fair came along just in time for the area residents and merchants to celebrate the completion of the Leland Avenue Streetscape Improvement Project. The beautifully improved streets and sidewalks incorporate stormwater elements: permeable pavers at parking strips and sidewalks, 63 new trees, and biofiltration planters installed adjacent to each catch basin. What will these new stormwater management elements do? They’ll help decrease stormwater flows to the City's combined sewer system, support water conservation goals, and link the new streetscape to neighboring green spaces along the Visitacion Valley Greenway. What else is new on Leland Avenue? LED streetlights, accessible curb ramps, corner bulb-outs, street repaving, decorative-stamped crosswalks, sidewalk furniture and public artwork.
