Ingleside’s western boundary is set for a makeover.

The San Francisco County Transit Authority in December approved the allocation of $4.4 million in sales tax revenue to Public Works for the renovation of the 16 blocks of Junipero Serra Boulevard between Monterey Boulevard and 19th Avenue.

SFCTA’s funding will cover demolition, street rehabilitation and sidewalk installation including curb ramp construction and retrofit.

The Pavement Condition Index, inspection reports kept by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, rates the stretch of thoroughfare in the low 60s. 

That’s just lower than the Bay Area-wide average PCI score 67 and San Francisco’s score of 75.

The PCI is determined by visual surveys performed by certified staff and each segment is evaluated based on ride quality, cracking and signs of wear in roadways.

Many sections of the sidewalk have been lifted up by tree roots over the years and many intersections do not have modern curb ramps for people with disabilities.

Aside from Junipero Serra Boulevard, one block of Stratford Drive will undergo pavement and sidewalk renovation and rehabilitation. Sewer mains will also be replaced along Junipero Serra Boulevard along with the traffic signal conduit and traffic signal box located at Junipero Serra Boulevard and Holloway Avenue.

The paving project will be coordinated by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency. 

The project is scheduled to start in 2023 with a targeted completion date in winter 2024.
