Traffic Conditions
In order to determine the impacts of additional trips resulting from the master plan and the improvements required to mitigate those impacts, the levels of service (LOS) under existing conditions were evaluated at 19 intersections in the vicinity of SFSU. The results are summarized on the accompanying Traffic diagram.

Map showing traffic conditions

At SFSU, 30 percent of commuters drive alone to campus. 26 percent of those who drive park on campus and 67 percent park near campus. On-campus parking includes the large parking structure near the baseball field as well as a number of smaller lots at different locations around the periphery of the current main campus. On average, a maximum overall campus parking occupancy of 80 percent is reached between 11AM and 2PM. In order to address future parking capacity issues, it may be useful to work with the adjacent Stonestown shopping center to determine whether university commuters could utilize excess parking capacity there, or by the same token whether SFSU parking might be used by Stonestown during the University’s off-peak hours. A shared parking strategy may prove successful due to the different periods of peak parking demand for the University (weekdays during the day) and the shopping center (nights and weekends).
