This Week: Safer Market Street

Tuesday is packed with important meetings about making biking and walking safer and more convenient. The first Safer Market Street meeting will preview Vision Zero improvements to SF’s premier street. Across town, long-awaited preferred designs for the Marina Path will be unveiled.

Here are this week’s highlights from the Streetsblog calendar:

  • Tuesday: SFMTA staff needs public input at the first community meeting about proposed turn restrictions on Market Street (part of a broader set of Vision Zero safety improvements), as well as new loading zones and wayfinding signage along the corridor. 6 p.m.
  • Also Tuesday: Give feedback on the preferred design for the Marina Path at the long-delayed Final Bay Trail Community Meeting. This bicycle and pedestrian path past the Marina should be designed to prioritize the 98 percent of users who walk and bike along it, rather than the two percent driving or parking. 6 p.m.
  • Even more on Tuesday: Join the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and Stanford Healthcare for the Silicon Valley Bike Summit, a forum to discuss how local government, police, and advocates can cooperate to make streets safer and more inviting for people on bikes. 10 a.m.

Keep an eye on the calendar for updated listings. Got an event we should know about? Drop us a line.
