Weigh in on Fell and Oak Street Separated Bikeways

Sep 192011

Last week, over 100 people came out to help shape the SFMTA’s plans for a separated bikeway on Fell and Oak Streets between Scott and Baker Streets. These three blocks represent a crucial link for safe and comfortable biking across town on the popular Bay to Beach route, and neighbors have been working for decades for calmer streets.

Members from the North of Panhandle, Alamo Square, and Lower Haight Neighborhood Associations, the Wigg Party, local business representatives, and many neighbors and SF Bicycle Coalition members came out and the discussion was lively. After a break-out session, those in attendance stressed that the main goal of this project should be to prioritize safety of all road users. You can read our live-tweet account of the evening here.

The SFMTA presented 5 options for a separated bikeway on these three Fell and Oak Streets – click here to download the SFMTA’s full presentation. The three options below were most supported by community members, with options D and E involving a two-way separated bikeway on one street.
