It’s been over a decade that our members and local residents have been fighting to turn Masonic Avenue from a traffic sewer into a calm and welcoming neighborhood boulevard. Now, we’re finally seeing the hard work pay off as we prepare to unveil the full transformation of Masonic Avenue this summer.
Where there was no bike lane to connect the Panhandle to Geary Boulevard previously, Masonic Avenue will now feature raised bike lanes, a new median with landscaping that will double the number of trees here, and a new plaza at Geary and Masonic featuring a public art installation by a local artist. Sections of Masonic will also feature transit boarding islands for the 43-Masonic to establish a protected bike lane.
Our members have been involved since the beginning of the project, and it’s because of their advocacy that the street now has infrastructure that puts people first.
This meeting will focus on putting together a celebration to recognize our members and their dedication to see this neighborhood street become a safe, comfortable place for those walking and biking. Join us and connect with other advocates of the project who want to continue to see changes like this in the neighborhood as we look toward the future.
Let’s Celebrate Masonic!
