DPT crews have begun striping a new bike lane on Clipper Street between Douglass Street and Portola Drive. Streetsblog tipster Nick sent us these photos of the work, which is expected to take a week to complete, according to Damon Curtis of the MTA’s bike program. Nick points out that many residents on Clipper Street support the bike lane, part of a traffic calming project in the Bike Plan.

Meantime, the MTA has given us an update on the status of the remaining projects recently given the go ahead by a San Francisco judge:

  • Otis Street between Gough Street and South Van Ness Avenue. Work to begin on 12/17 if it IS raining (estimate 1 week to complete striping work)
  • 7th Avenue between Lawton Street and Lincoln Way. Work to begin after repaving work is finished (estimate 2 weeks to complete striping work)
  • JFK Drive between Kezar and Transverse Drives in Golden Gate Park. This project is proceeding on a separate legislative track led by the Recreation and Parks Department, and is expected to be complete in Spring 2010.
