At last month’s Port Commission meeting, we caught our first glimpses of the people-friendly future of the Embarcadero. We need your help in making sure we turn this vision into reality. Join our Embarcadero Committee meeting next week as we plan for the October open house.
After the meeting last month, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) committed to starting the environmental review phase of the project this year and installing near-term safety improvements to the corridor. This will include replacing the “floating” part-time curbside bike lane on Southbound Embarcadero with an all-day green bike lane with soft-hit posts, upgrading all crosswalks to high-visibility crosswalks, and creating bike lanes on Battery and Sansome to provide an alternate route for bicyclists. The project now has a path forward, but we need to rally support in order to see these near-term improvements delivered by the end of this year.
We all know there’s overcrowding and far too many collisions along the Embarcadero. It’s time to come together and dream big to make sure it becomes a welcoming and safe street for all people.
Embarcadero Committee Meeting
Thursday, Oct. 4, 5:30 to 7:00 PM
Philz Coffee, 5 Embarcadero Center
At our Embarcadero Committee meeting, we will develop our strategy for turning out supporters to pack the rooms at the upcoming October open house. We will also discuss how we can engage a broad community along the way to make sure this project fits the needs of all those enjoying the City’s iconic waterfront. Join other like-minded advocates who are ready to see the Embarcadero put people first.
