On June 16th, 2017 the SFMTA hosted their second public safety meeting to unveil their official proposal for 17th Street. Chief Engineer Mike Sallaberry’s plan is a combination of parking space removal and protected bike lanes on both sides of 17th St. from Church St. to Sanchez Street.
The SFMTA Bicycle Safety Project plan has definite pro’s, con’s and limits to its effectiveness. But it is a plan and below are posted the signboards from the presentation and a bunch of photo’s from the event at Mission Station. Following that at the bottom of this posting are 30 comments that were left by the folks attending the event.
The next steps are a public hearing, SFMTA Board approval and construction this coming Fall. I am endorsing it as a positive first step toward a more complete solution. The folks at SFMTA have additional info on this at the official project site on the SFMTA website including the .pdf files of the project boards.
The next set of images are the feedback and comments of 29 random folks who attended the event. They are anonymous and any emails or names that were there got blanked.
