Bicycle Lanes Proposed for North End of Great Highway
Cyclists pedaling the north end of the Great Highway may not have to dodge cars on the road or pedestrians on the promenade if the City approves a proposed set of bike lanes.
The lanes would run southbound from Balboa Street to Lincoln Way, and northbound from Lincoln Way to Fulton Street. They’re part of a larger plan to install new bicycle lanes in the area, including on Point Lobos Avenue, the steep and curving street that runs past the Cliff House.
On Friday morning the Sustainable Streets Division of the Municipal Transportation Agency will consider the proposal, part of an expanded version of a plan already part of the San Francisco Bicycle Plan.
If the proposal is approved, the car traffic lanes on that part of the Great Highway would be narrowed to accommodate the 6-foot wide bike lanes. That work would be done some time after a repaving project anticipated to begin this month adds a 2-foot raised median to the Great Highway.
