Over the past year, we’ve seen how quickly protected bike lanes can go into the ground. Thanks to Mayor Lee’s 2016 Executive Directive on Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety, three new protected bicycle lanes were built in under nine months. Now, there’s a chance coming to make it happen again.
While the long-term Folsom and Howard Streetscape Project brings exciting designs for protected bike lanes, our members won commitments for near-term improvements, as well. Both Folsom and Howard are on SF’s high-injury network, and you’ve made it clear that safety improvements can’t wait for the longer-term redesign.
Join us on Oct. 17 to support key approvals for these near-term improvements at the SF Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Directors meeting. This will be the final approval for the near-term project. We need you there to push the City to deliver protected bike lanes on both Folsom and Howard with urgency.
