It’s your SF Bicycle Coalition’s mission to make biking more convenient, safer and fun in every neighborhood. Recently, we shared our efforts to improve access to McLaren Park for people biking from the Excelsior, but what about improving biking on the eastern side of McLaren Park?
For years, we have been advocating alongside our members for better bike infrastructure in the Portola and Visitación Valley. In 2013, we helped win approval for bike lanes on Bayshore Boulevard, Paul Avenue and a short segment of San Bruno Avenue. These bike lanes are critical connections in the bike network, connecting the Portola and the Bayview. While the Bayshore bike lanes were quickly implemented, delays have hampered implementation of the Paul and San Bruno bike lanes for nearly three years.
The San Bruno Avenue Multimodal Improvement Project, is an opportunity to overcome some of these barriers. With the goals to improve biking, walking and transit on this important neighborhood corridor, adding buffered bike lanes to San Bruno Avenue, between Mansell and Paul, is once again on the table.
Join fellow members at the next open house for the project on Saturday, Mar. 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to support buffered bike lanes on San Bruno Avenue. Can’t make the open house? Join our campaign to keep up to date on this exciting project.
Your SF Bicycle Coalition can’t make Mansell Street any less steep but, together, we can at least make it safer to get there!
