This HIA addressed the traffic and transportation system in the Excelsior District of San Francisco. It was undertaken as a collaboration between PODER, a citizen's group, and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. The HIA focused on how the transportation system—which includes a freeway and heavy traffic corridors running through the neighborhood—may affect the health of local residents through factors such as air pollution, noise and traffic-related injuries. The HIA provided potential solutions to the risks identified, such as using hybrid busses to reduce air pollution and rerouting trucks away from neighborhoods.
