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 feature innovative green infrastructure technologies, which may include integration of permeable paving 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.
