Update on the newest bikeway projects in the ground and being planned.
17th Street bike lanes, Corbett Avenue to Kansas Street (including connections) : From the Castro to Mission Bay, this project links neighborhoods and other important bike routes and will be an essential east-west connection in San Francisco. Bike lanes are now in the ground on 17th Street between Church and Kansas Street!
2nd Street bike lanes, Market Street to King Street. Neighbors on 2nd Street have voiced strong support for separated bikeways and pedestrian safety improvements between Market Street and King Street. Click for more details and ways you can support better biking on 2nd Street.
John F. Kennedy Drive separated bikeway, Kezar Drive to Transverse Drive. Construction of the city's first parking-protected bikeway is complete. This separated bikeway is the first of its kind in San Francisco and provides a safer and more comfortable biking experience away from moving vehicles. This project is at of the heart of our Connecting the City Bay to Beach route.
Cargo Way separated bikeway, 3rd Street to Jennings Street: Thanks to the hard work of the SF Port and SFMTA, Cargo Way is getting a two-way separated bikeway, providing a much-improved connection to and from the Bayview and the Southeast Waterfront.
Cesar Chavez Street , US 101 to I-280: Separated bikeways are under construction on Cesar Chavez east. Striping of the bikeway is complete except for the Evans intersection. In the coming weeks expect to see a bikeway separated with soft-hit posts and use of green pavement as well!
Bayshore Boulevard and Loomis Street bike lanes and sharrows, Cesar Chavez to Silver: Bike lanes are in the ground on Bayshore Boulevard between Silver Street and Oakdale, and sharrows are going in on Loomis Street connecting to Cesar Chavez - another improvement to biking in southeastern neighborhoods.
