  • Geary…
    So, basically the street from Stanyan to Market will be ripped up like Van Ness for at least 3 years. Great. What do we get from this? Certainly not a subway or dedicated ROW light rail system that would move these 54,000 38/38R folks a heck of a lot faster.
    As for safety…blame SF and eminent domain back in the 60s for turning Geary into a ped unfriendly freeway.

    BRT in the median, a la Van Ness, is due to happen west of Stanyan. From Stanyan to Market the changes are relatively cosmetic and the first round will take four to six weeks. From the Mass Transit article linked to above: “The first set of transit and pedestrian safety improvements will begin this week and are expected to take about four to six weeks. Those include almost two new miles of transit-only lanes in each direction on most blocks between Stanyan and Gough streets. New bicycle markings will also be painted to help cyclists cross Geary at Webster, Steiner and Masonic.”

  • No, I’m talking about ripping up the streets for utilities.

    Is that due to happen on Geary east of Stanyan?
