Traffic Signal at Duncan
The traffic signal at Duncan and Guerrero was turned on on May 5th, 2005.
The signal shortens the "uncontrolled" (the technical term meaning "lacking signals or stop signs") section of San Jose/Guerrero between 29th and Cesar Chavez.
The signal is meant to help slow traffic to the residential speed limit and to give a respite to pedestrians, bicyclists and cars trying to cross Guerrero.
The signal was approved by the city in 1999.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
Supervisors Bevan Dufty and Tom Ammiano and representatives from DPT, DPW, the police department and St. Luke's hospital joined local residents, school children and business owners in a "ribbon cutting" for the new signal at Duncan and Guerrero.
The signal was inaugurated by owners of the two businesses at that intersection.
Symbolic of the damage done to the neighborhood by the freeway nature of the road, these business owners had never met one another prior to the ribbon cutting, despite being literally just across the street from one another.
