In an effort to revamp its famous Market Street, the city of San Francisco has received a $15 million grant from the federal government to start a major construction project in the downtown corridor.

The allotted amount comes after the Department of Transportation announced that the $15 million was only for the first phase of the project and another $604 million will also be granted over the duration of the project which isn’t expected to begin until 2020.

Deemed, The Better Market Street initiative, the 2.2 mile long section will receive a major public transportation overhaul as the funds will go to modernize and enhance everything from trains, busses and street paving, while also adding pedestrian lanes several bicycle stations.

“it’s a privilege to announce this new, transformative investment in San Francisco’s infrastructure, which will help deliver a modern , efficient transit system withy of America’s cradle of innovation,” said House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi whose constituents will be the lucky recipients of the makeover.

She also added, “The Better Market Street initiative will cut through the congestion and improve speed and capacity for millions of workers, students and families while better protecting pedestrians and bicycles.”

The grant is part of the Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development program, or better known as BUILD.

The city’s Mayor and fellow Democrat London Breed gave Pelosi full credit for securing the funds, saying it potentially wouldn’t-be without her “steadfast support.”

Breed also said, “The Better Market Street initiative is central to our efforts to increase public safety and make smart investments in our infrastructure to prepare for the future.”
