Bike lane projects continue to roll out across the city, linking neighborhoods and inviting more and more people to get around San Francisco by bike. The latest addition is on Division Street, between 9th Street and 11th Street, featuring a painted buffer — with plastic bollards coming soon — creating a physical separation from the vehicle traffic. The Division bike lanes fill an important gap in the route to and from the Caltrain station and are a terrific addition to the recently striped bike lanes on Townsend Street, making commute trips and crosstown rides safer, more comfortable and pleasant.
What’s next? SF Municipal Transportation Agency paint crews are already working on Laguna Honda Boulevard, striping bike lanes between Portola Drive and Woodside and extending the recently installed bike lanes on lower Laguna Honda and Seventh Avenue; this project should be complete by Thanksgiving. Work on Glen Park area bike lanes (parts of Arlington, Bosworth, San Jose, Lyell and Alemany) will begin after Laguna Honda Boulevard (around Nov. 29) and should be completed by Dec. 10.
Bike lane links are adding up all across San Francisco, find out where else new bicycle lanes are due to be striped.
