Watch the Steiner Bridge Be Demolished in Time-Lapse Video
Geary and Steiner has a new look. To improve crosswalks and medians, the circa-1962 pedestrian overpass at Geary and Steiner was permanently demolished over Memorial Day weekend.
The Steiner bridge demolition is part of the Geary Rapid Project, which aims to improve 38 Geary bus service and bring much-needed safety improvements to the Geary corridor. After utility upgrades are completed, the intersection at Steiner will be transformed again with safety and accessibility improvements for people walking.
New sidewalk extensions at intersection corners will shorten crossing distances, and improved crosswalks with larger median refuges will be installed on both sides of the intersection, along with an upgraded traffic signal. The bridge landing areas will also be renovated with new amenities for the adjacent Hamilton Recreation Center and Raymond Kimbell Playground later this year.
The view at Geary and Steiner looks different this week—over the weekend the Steiner pedestrian bridge was removed and streets were reopened on Sunday night, a day ahead of schedule. Check out the before and after photos. https://t.co/UmjeY97Y0V pic.twitter.com/E4H6IUEvH8
