Market Street Gets More Green Lanes, Fresh Pavement

Did you notice Market Street is a little greener this morning? Thanks to Supervisor Scott Wiener, the Department of Public Works, SFMTA, and your San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, the City is rolling out the green carpet for people biking on Market Street between Van Ness and Duboce.

This stretch of Market, a main route for people heading to and from the Wiggle, is receiving a fresh coat of asphalt and green paint this week. If you’ve ridden this part of Market recently, you know the road was bumpy and cracked and the stretches of bike lane that were green were fading badly. We’re excited to see this critical part of Market Street get the love it deserves!

But pavement and green paint are just the beginning – we’re about to see a series of improvements to make Market Street even better for biking. Next up is Safer Market Street coming this Spring/Summer, which will expand private automobile turn restrictions and increase enforcement of transit-only lanes.
