SFMTA Open House: Howard Street Buffered Bike Lane

From SFBC:

Join us at the official City open house and learn about the upcoming Howard Street Buffered Bikeway Project, a near term Vision Zero project on Howard Street between 6th and 10th streets. The project duplicates many of the same improvements on Folsom Street between 4th and 10th by creating a buffered bicycle lane, painting temporary sidewalk extensions, and reducing the width of traffic lanes people walking need to cross. Once implemented, it is expected to increase the safety for people biking in SoMa.
