    Oh good. Van Ness down to two lanes and people driving on the wrong side of the road. That will do wonders for the 47 and the 49.

    Santa Rosa’s approval process for infill development is more toxic than the fires.

    Good point, they should divert private vehicles onto Gough/Franklin while they do this work— transit first, right?

  • Gough/Franklin are already bumper to bumper most times of the day because of general traffic congestion N-S and drivers avoiding the Van Ness mess. If SF were truly a Transit First city this would all be a moot point because the city would already have had a great mass transit system in place years ago encouraging fewer people to own/drive cars.

    Great– then traffic won’t even get worse on those streets if we divert cars off of Van Ness! Win-win!
