Upcoming traffic changes
With the upcoming Polk Street paving work, SFMTA is implementing new striping of travel lanes with new improved bikeway designs. Parking and loading changes will occur with the new striping, including the removal of all parking on the east side of Polk Street between Pine Street and McAllister Street and some removal of parking on the west side of Polk Street with improved commercial and passenger loading spaces to better accommodate the area’s demand. See www.sfmta.com/polk for more information.
 
SFMTA legislated parking and loading changes for Polk Street and these changes will be implemented after final paving is completed for each segment. The parking and loading changes to the Polk side streets north of California Street have been implemented and the remainder of side streets changes will occur later this fall. To see the final parking and loading changes on Polk Street and the cross-streets, please see the final traffic striping plan here.
