    It would be helpful if you included cross streets with the addresses. I don’t know where “1119 Market” or “1220 Market” are. I was assuming that this occured at the 6th St intersection (that is what I call Central Market) and not the Union Square/City Hall Market/Upper Tenderloin.

      Thanks, we generally noted cross streets on our flyers, but will try to be more consistent. The ARTery Project is between UN Plaza and 6th Street.
