Haight and Octavia, Plus Side Roads

Haight Street and Octavia Boulevard, San Francisco (2005)

Another major intersection along Octavia Boulevard is at Haight Street. This photo, taken in September 2005, looks south on the side road for southbound traffic paralleling Octavia.

The No Turns sign is for traffic on the main boulevard. It is flanked by two one-way frontage streets, one for each direction of traffic. They provide parking and are also used for traffic that needs to turn. As a result of this design, drivers on Octavia need to plan at least a block ahead for any turns onto intersecting streets.
