SFMTA Bike Strategy Update

From the SF Bike Coalition's Newsletter,
Weigh in on Next Bike Projects in San Francisco 
Bike Network SurveyBig news! The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has published its draft list of next wave bike projects, including new bikeways and hot spot improvements on streets that the agency manages. The list is a great start, but we know that you — the people who bike in our city every day —  have valuable insight into what streets and intersections need the most work.  
You can give your feedback in two ways: take our survey and/or come to our MEMBER MEETING TONIGHT and give your feedback in person. The Member Meeting is open to all current members and will be open house style, so swing by any time between 5 and 7PM.  
We will combine your responses with the feedback we get from members and the riding public throughout the year, and we will use it to inform our formal response to the SFMTA’s list. 
While none of the 20-miles of route expansion will happen in D10, and none of the existing route upgrades fall into the highest demand category (24.2-miles), 8.11 miles of roadway (16.1% of the 50-mile total) in D10 are identified on SFMTA's list of enhancements to existing bike network as being in the low to high categories:

High Demand
Indiana St (0.99 miles, Mariposa to Cesar Chavez)

Phelps St (0.64 miles, Evans Ave to Palou Ave)
Mariposa (0.36 miles, Mississippi to Illinois)
Potrero Ave (0.33 miles, Division to 17th St)

Medium Demand

3rd St (2.00 miles, Islais Creek Bridge to US101)
Bayshore Blvd* (0.93 miles, Paul Ave to Silver Ave)

Paul Ave* (0.85 miles, Bayshore to 3rd St)

Lowest Demand

Silver Ave (2.01 miles, Alemany blvd to Palou Ave)

* - projects that ranked high through the analysis but are completed or already identified improvements by Sustainable Streets.
