SFMTA Takes Newest Cycle Track for a Spin: New Cycle Track Recently Installed on Laguna Honda
Release date: 2/14/11
*** Press Release ***
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates the Municipal Railway (Muni) and oversees all surface transportation in the City, today announced the completion of the latest cycle track in San Francisco. The Laguna Honda Boulevard cycle track, which runs from Clarendon Avenue to Woodside Avenue, was completed this month.
“This project fills a crucial gap along this important north-south bicycle route,” said Nathaniel P. Ford Sr., Executive Director/CEO. “As the SFMTA continues to implement the Bicycle Plan, more and more pieces of the network will be linked together to make the network more inviting and useful.”
A cycle track is a separated bicycle facility which generally consists of abike lane,a cross-hatched buffer area between the bike lane and the adjacent traffic lane, and safe-hit posts in the buffer area to reinforce the separation and deter encroachment into the bike lane by other traffic.
While separated bicycle facilities such as this are relatively new in San Francisco, they have been used in Europe for many years. The Laguna Honda Boulevard cycle track is the third use of this kind of facility in San Francisco’s bike network. The first was a trial version on Market Street between 8th and Gough streets installed in November 2009. The second was incorporated into the Division Street bike improvements between 10th and 11th streets this fall. Over the next year and a half, the SFMTA has planned six additional cycle track projects on Alemany Boulevard, Great Highway, John Muir Drive, Portola Drive, Cargo Way and Innes Avenue.
