Update: The proposed improvements for Arguello Blvd are going to the SFMTA Board for full approval on August 16 1:00 at City Hall room 400
The time is now to deliver a more welcoming, more bikeable Arguello, and we can’t wait for repaving.
With the help of our members and the larger community, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is working on a long-term vision for Arguello that offers buffered green bike lanes, bike turn boxes, improved crosswalks and safer intersections. In a crucial step towards that vision, the SFMTA has decided not to wait for the repaving next year and is implementing some near-term solutions that will make the street more enjoyable for biking, whether you’re commuting to work or traveling between the Presidio and Golden Gate Park.
Earlier this month the SFMTA hosted a second Community Walk Through, attended by many SF Bicycle Coalition members. Planners discussed the options for near-term and long-term changes to the corridor and took feedback from attendees. With your input incorporated, Arguello’s near-term improvements may include an added buffer to the existing lane, lines to guide bicycles through intersections, and a traffic diversion at McAllister Street that makes the left turn much safer for people on bicycles.
Arguello could not be this close to improvements without your support, and now’s the time to show that support. We need to show the City that this first step is critical to improving this well-loved corridor in the long run.
Write a letter today and support the SFMTA delivering a more livable, bikeable Arguello ahead of the City’s repaving schedule. Because improving our streets should not have to wait.
