    The SFMOMA grand re-opening is a big deal, but I don’t see how that’s a Streetsblog type story. Sorry, I’m just a stickler for order in the universe.

    It’s going to take me a lot more study to have an opinion on what color this particular “bike shed” should be. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Law_of_triviality

  • “Bay Area traffic jams growing worse…”

    You don’t say. Sadly, nothing of worth is being done to change its course. The Central Subway is a waste of $2B. Caltrain electrification/extension to TTC is now decades away (and that’s just connecting riders to downtown and isn’t an expansion project). BART to SJ is another boondoggle as downtown SJ only gets 2 stations and the rest are just typical car-centric, commuter rail stations.

    And people wonder why traffic is bad. For a region of over 7 million people there is 1 bridge connecting SF with the East Bay and 1 tunnel carrying an already maxed out subway. Way to go!
