Almost one year ago, Folsom got protected bike lanes while Howard, its equally dangerous sister street, got nothing. Just this month, the unsafe conditions on Howard have claimed two lives.
Finally, safety improvements for Howard, including protected bike lanes, are up for approval next month.
We need to rally together on October 16 and make sure the City approves and builds protected bike lanes on Howard by the end of this year. No one should have to die due to unsafe street design. We need to push the SFMTA to do more for our safety.
Howard is one of our busiest bike corridors, with thousands of daily riders. For the past year, the lack of protected facilities has made it a glaring gap in our bicycle network. On October 16, the SFMTA has an opportunity to end the delays and approve construction of protected bike lanes from 6th to 11th streets.

Join us as we push the SFMTA Board of Directors to approve protected bike lanes for Howard and fast-track construction so that it is in the ground by the end of 2018.
