Haight and Octavia

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 north on Octavia.

The main boulevard is flanked by two one-way frontage streets, such as the one shown here. They provide parking. They are also used for traffic that needs to turn. As a result, drivers on Octavia need to plan at least a block ahead for any turns onto intersecting streets.
