The SFMTA installed bike lanes this weekend on the Great Highway, north of Fulton Street at Golden Gate Park. The Great Highway continues as Point Lobos Avenue as it runs by the Cliff House.

The bike lanes are buffered from motor traffic on some stretches, and two of the four traffic lanes on Point Lobos in front of the Cliff House were removed, which should help calm car traffic. The bike lane also disappears on the downhill section of Point Lobos, though sharrows were stenciled in the traffic lane, and there's a wide shoulder between the lane and the row of angled car parking which it runs by.

The bike lanes were installed as part of a re-paving and streetscape improvement project underway by the Department of Public Works that's expected to be finished by October. The SFMTA will install plastic posts in the buffer zones "later in the construction period," according to the agency's Livable Streets Facebook page.

Thanks to Andy Thornley for the photos -- he also pointed out that this is part of the Pacific Coast Bicycle Route, which runs all the way from Oregon to Mexico.
