Work began the first week of June 2017 on Phase 2 of the project. Work is scheduled to complete December 2017. The contractor has begun sewer catch-basin work at Pierce and Waller Streets and Waller and Steiner Streets intersections. Crews have also started installing curb-ramps at Pierce and Waller, Potomac and Waller, and Steiner and Waller intersections. Visit SFMTA project website to learn more.
Improving our Sewer System and Benefiting the Community
The Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor is a partnership of the SFPUC and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), located along the iconic “Wiggle” bicycle route and the Lower Haight, Alamo Square and Duboce Park neighborhoods.
This project will integrate traffic calming with innovative green infrastructure technologies to naturally capture stormwater before it enters our combined sewer system. Because the majority of the City’s surfaces are paved, stormwater has no place to go other than the sewer system. During heavy rains, this can overwhelm the system and result in neighborhood flooding. Phase 1 of the Wiggle at Oak and Fell Streets was completed in 2015 and includes rain gardens and permeable pavement. Phase 2 will include rain garden bulb outs along the corridor to Church and Duboce.
Proposed Green Features
• Bulb outs with Rain Gardens
• Permeable Pavement
• Improved stormwater management and reduced localized flooding
• Enhanced safety for pedestrians and bicyclists
