Safety improvements are on the horizon, running the full length of Second Street, from Market to King. They will include bicycle-specific signaling to help reduce car/bike conflicts at intersections. The project could widen sidewalks, improve streetscaping, and includes a protected bike lane.
Second Street is one of South of Market’s most important bike routes, connecting the Financial District with Caltrain, South Beach and AT&T Park. The Second Street corridor is also home to a growing residential community, creative industries and local shops.
But if you’ve walked or ridden your bike down Second Street lately, you know it can feel likeCarmageddon, especially during peak commute hours. Thankfully, the Department of Public Works proposed transformative safety upgrades and enhancements that could include raised, protected bike lanes in both directions. Now we need your help getting these plans approved.
After over a decade of planning and advocacy from our members and groups like Great Second Street, we’re excited to see the Second Street Improvement Project move out of environmental review with a series of approvals and certifications coming in the next month. Join us at the first of these critical approval hearings next week:
