The Recreation and Park Department is managing the improvement of Civic Center Plaza (Joseph L. Alioto Performing Arts Piazza) with the implementation assistance of the Department of Public Works.

Scope of Work

The improvements include sidewalk demolition, repairs and paving. Some modifications and improvements will also be made to the plaza stairways and other access areas. A new “bulb-out” will be installed at the southeast corner of McAllister Street and Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place. Corner “bulb-outs” are a sidewalk widening feature that can improve pedestrian safety by shortening the crossing distance, improving pedestrian visibility, and reducing the speed of turning traffic.

Construction Impact

Some street parking may be unavailable during construction. Please observe parking and traffic signage in the area and allow extra travel time in case of traffic delays during construction.

Project Schedule

November 2014 through Spring 2015
