JFK Drive Separated Bikeway – a robust community process for better biking

Oct 192011

As the Recreation and Parks Commission gets ready to decide on the JFK Drive Separated Bikeway project, we want to thank the thousands of San Franciscans that have helped support and shape this project. The resulting project will hopefully bring 1.5 miles of separated bikeway to JFK Drive between Stanyan Street and Transverse Drive.

Here is a glimpse at the long history of input on the JFK Drive Separated Bikeway:

Late 2010 – Early 2011 – SFMTA and Recreation and Parks begin conceptual plans for separated bikeway on JFK Drive.

Spring 2011 – Outreach on project and upcoming community meetings to groups including Mayor’s Office of Disability, Paratransit Coordinating Council, Academy of Sciences, de Young Museum, Conservatory of Flowers, WalkSF, Supervisors Eric Mar and Carmen Chu, Planning Association for the Richmond, Inner Sunset Park Neighbors, SF Parks Trust, Neighborhood Parks Council, SF Travel Association, and general public.
