Two bike corridors connecting the city’s southeastern neighborhoods should be safer after crews finish constructing buffered bike lanes on eastern Cesar Chavez Street  and a two-way protected bikeway on Cargo Way .
Bike commuters are already enjoying more room on a section of eastern Cesar Chavez, where car parking has been cleared and preliminary striping put on the ground, as shown in photos  posted by the SF Bike Coalition yesterday. The SFMTA writes on its Livable Streets Facebook page  that the construction is only in its first phase. The plan for the Evans Street intersection, which recently cleared a public hearing , must still be approved by the SFMTA Board of Directors on April 3 before it is implemented.
The project will also include green pavement treatments and soft-hit posts separating the bike lanes and will be completed some time in the summer, according to the SFMTA’s latest report [PDF ] to the SF Bicycle Advisory Committee.
Just to the southeast, crews are building a two-way protected bikeway linking Third Steet to Hunter’s Point and Heron’s Head Park . The project, led by the Port of San Francisco, will include a chain-link fence separating the bikeway from motor traffic as well as green pavement treatments and bicycle traffic signals. The SFMTA report says the bikeway will be completed in May.
