Tomorrow: Show Your Support for the Fell and Oak Bikeways

The SFMTA will reveal the proposed design for protected bike lanes [2] on Fell and Oak Streets [3] tomorrow, and supporters need to make their voices heard to ensure the agency doesn’t water the project down or it delay it any further.

The project was significantly delayed [4] after the SFMTA set out to replace some of the free curbside car parking that would make way for the bike lanes. Construction is now slated for the winter [5], but a small group of vocal opponents [6] are still pushing against major safety improvements for this crucial bicycle connector.

SFMTA staff will present a design for the project tomorrow, but could still make minor changes based on the input they receive at the charette. (See here [7] for designs presented at the last workshop.)

The open house [8] will be held tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the San Francisco Day School, located at 350 Masonic Avenue (at Golden Gate).
