STREET DESIGN: POLK STREET
There are two alternative street designs proposed for Polk Street, as shown below in the diagram.
The “Complete Street” alternative would calm Polk St by adding parking-protected bike lanes.
The “Plaza Promenade” alternative would transform Polk Street on the City Hall block into one with a strong pedestrian emphasis, while also enhancing its role as a major bicycle route.
NOTE: The images above show how each option might look on the block adjacent to Civic Center Plaza. Please note that the design changes from block to block. A PDF plan view showing the conceptual design for other blocks is available for download below.
