Belle Haven Traffic Calming Study


The Belle Haven neighborhood is defined as the area bounded by Willow Road on the east, the Dumbarton Rail Corridor on the north, and U.S. Highway 101 on the south.

On April 20, 2019, the City Council approved the Belle Haven Neighborhood Traffic Management Plan(PDF, 2MB) (Español(PDF, 3MB)) to address cut-through traffic concerns in the Belle Haven neighborhood through the use of traffic calming measures.

Typically, cut-through traffic refers to trips generated outside of a predefined area and traveling through to a destination outside of the area. To counter this type of driving behavior, traffic calming measures such as education, enforcement and physical structures are often recommended and implemented as possible solutions.

    In June 2020, the installation of temporary traffic calming measures within City jurisdiction was completed. Additionally, schematic design plans were submitted to SFPUC and Caltrans in October 2020 for initial review.
