Bike Lane Progress on JFK, Bayshore, Cesar Chavez, and Cargo Way

Bike network expansions are going in at a rapid clip so far this spring. In Golden Gate Park, parking-protected bike lanes on John F. Kennedy Drive are mostly finished on the stretch in front of the Conservatory of Flowers, and drivers already seem to be picking up on the new parking arrangement.

Progress on new bike lanes connecting eastern neighborhoods continues on Bayshore Boulevard, Eastern Cesar Chavez Street, and Cargo Way. Folsom Street in the Mission has also been re-paved, and the SFMTA said bike lanes should be striped there soon.

On Bayshore Boulevard, the SFMTA is striping buffered bike lanes similar to the recent Caltrans project on Sloat Boulevard, reclaiming a roughly 9-foot travel lane for bicycle traffic. In the coming weeks, the street markings should create a safer bicycling connection and calm traffic between Cesar Chavez at the 101 Highway south to Silver Avenue.

Buffered bike lanes on Eastern Cesar Chavez also passed a milestone this week after the SFMTA Board of Directors finally approved the safer bike lane plan for the Evans Street intersection. According to the SFMTA's Livable Streets Facebook page, a water main break caused a delay in the construction, but it should be completed this month.

On Cargo Way, a two-way bikeway project led by the Port of San Francisco is on its way to completion in May and will connect Hunter's Point to bike lanes on Illinois Street. A fence separating the bikeway from motor traffic is starting to take shape.

Finally, here's one more shot from JFK Drive. We'll be keeping you posted on the city's first parking-protected bikeway as it takes shape.
