Weigh in on Future Designs for Folsom and Howard

Coming up: an opportunity to shape future SoMa streets. On April 27 and 29, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) will present designs for reenvisioned Folsom and Howard streets.

These two open houses give you the space to provide feedback at an early stage in planning and inform the final preferred design. Led by the SFMTA, transportation planners are set up around the room to present details about the project, answer your questions and record your feedback.

Folsom-Howard Open House #1
Thursday, April 27 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Bessie Carmichael Elementary School at 375 Seventh St.

Folsom-Howard Open House #2
Saturday, April 29 from 12:00 – 2:00 pm
Bessie Carmichael Elementary School at 375 Seventh St.


The Folsom and Howard Streetscape Project will bring important improvements to two of our busiest bike routes. Currently, the experience of biking in SoMa is filled with passengers unloading in bike lanes and speeding drivers on four-lane streets. Biking is more popular than ever as a way to commute to and from SoMa, and people of all ages and backgrounds need to feel welcome when biking on Folsom and Howard streets.

Several design alternatives for the two streets will be presented at these two open houses, and City staff seek for your feedback. Both open houses will be identical, so show up to whichever works best.
