Proposed Realignment of Bike Lane on Folsom at Essex
|June 17, 2014||Posted by jamie under Meetings, Transportation & Ped Safety||
Here’s the flyer that shows a proposed realignment of the bike lane to make it safer for bicyclists traveling east on Folsom Street between 2nd and 1st Streets. There’s a meeting on Friday morning to approve the proposed realignment. I hope it gets approved! Sharing the message below from the SBRMBNA Yahoo Group.
I am writing to let you and the SBRMBNA know about an improvement to the city’s bike network planned for the Folsom Street between 1st and 3rd streets. The bike lane on this stretch has multiple jogs where eastbound bicyclists and freeway-bound motorists must weave. SFMTA proposes to remedy this by moving the bike lane curbside between 2nd and Essex, with a new bike traffic signal to manage the Folsom/Essex intersection. The project will require removing seven metered parking spaces on Folsom Street. There is a public hearing for this change on Friday, June 20th, for which we have placed postings in the project vicinity. The attached flyer provides a summary of the project and details on the public hearing. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
