This Week: Talk With Supes About Polk, Support a Safer Wiggle

To do: Have a beer with three supervisors to talk Polk Street, and show support for safety upgrades on the Wiggle.

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

  • Tuesday: A forum following SPUR‘s Transit + Design Workshops will feature “fast-paced presentations” about “the power of design” to improve the transit-riding experience. 5 p.m.
  • Thursday: Join Supervisors London Breed, Scott Wiener, and Julie Christensen at a Folks for Polk Pub Talk about the future of Polk Street and transportation in SF. 6:30 p.m.
  • Friday: On the SFMTA’s public engineering hearing agenda: safety improvements to transform the Wiggle, including raised crosswalks and bulb-outs with rain gardens, one of which will divert car traffic at Scott and Fell Streets. Voice your support to ensure the SFMTA makes the upgrades happen. 10 a.m.
  • Saturday: Andy Thornley leads a SF Bicycle Coalition survey ride in the Outer Richmond to evaluate how to improve SF’s bicycle infrastructure for everyday bike trips. 1:30 p.m.

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

    That bike-only entrance to Scott at Fell is wide enough that a lot of scofflaw cars will probably use it. I wonder if they could plan a physical barrier or curb between the northbound and southbound bike lanes.
