After repeated delays and some intermittent rain, the SFMTA has apparently begun construction of the city’s first parking-protected bikeway on John F. Kennedy Drive in Golden Gate Park. The center lane striping appeared mostly grinded off on the western section of the road yesterday from Transverse Drive just past Stow Lake Drive. Construction equipment also sat at a spot where some digging had begun, possibly for drain work or curb ramps. The SFMTA has said it should be finished in March, weather permitting.
