Which Street Improvements Will Prop B Fund? Preliminary List Emerges

A list of pedestrian, bicycle, and transit projects that could be boosted by the voter-approved Prop B Street Improvement Bond is making its way through the city legislature, revealing how the $50 million dedicated to streetscape improvements may be divvied up.

The projects — which would add safety improvements like pedestrian bulb-outs and islands, crosswalks, new or upgraded bike lanes, and more throughout the city — are listed by district, and many (but not all) have timetables attached. Some projects may sound familiar, like the Fell and Oak bikeway and pedestrian improvement project (slated to receive $1,100,000 in bond funds), while many others are still in their nascent stages, with few details available.

Streetsblog reported yesterday, Polk Street would benefit from roughly $5.5 million towards two projects: a protected contra-flow bike lane as well as a larger streetscape makeover.

The list was approved last week by the SF Capital Planning Committee and must still go to the Board of Supervisors. The next bond sale would distribute the funds in March 2013, according to a committee presentation [PDF].
