A $604 million plan would ban private cars on Market Street in hopes of creating a “Champs-Élysées” of San Francisco to benefit pedestrians, cyclists and riders of public transit. The plan was released last week by the Department of Public Works and would cover 2.2 miles between Octavia Boulevard and the Embarcadero. We’ll get the details about the project and hear how the public can provide input before construction begins.
