Fell and Oak Streets

Serving as the northern and southern borders of the Panhandle, Fell and Oak streets are large streets with fast traffic taken by many commuters both by bike and car. While buffered bike lanes have greatly improved the biking experience, there continues to be much more that can be done for walking and biking.

Thanks to the advocacy of many of our members and in partnership with other neighborhood groups, the SFMTA Board of Directors unanimously approved a project on October 16, 2012 to install a protected bikeway on Fell and Oak Streets from Scott Street to Baker Street. This allowed for a much safer connection to and from the Wiggle, especially on these high-speed streets. After the bikeways were completed in May 2013, preliminary reports show an overall decrease in speeds and better behavior from people who now felt much better biking in the protected bikeway.

We were excited to celebrate the final completion of the Fell and Oak protected bike lanes just in time for Bike to Work Day 2015. Thanks to the many neighborhood groups, community leaders and everyday residents who spoke up and advocated for many improvements over the years to get to where we are today.

Project Details

On October 16, 2012, the SFMTA Fell and Oak Pedestrian and Bike Safety Project is approved. The first phase of construction completed in May 2013, which included:

  • Protected bikeways on Fell Street (going west) and Oak Street (going east) from Scott Street to Baker Street
  • Green bike lanes to increase visibility and highlight designation
  • Soft-hit posts to prevent vehicles from entering the buffer zone
