In 2019, as part of the Central Richmond Traffic Safety Project, neighbors created a street safety project wish list alongside the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) and Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer. One of the most popular ideas to come out of the process were bike lanes on Anza Street.
Now, your SF Bicycle Coalition is excited to announce that the Anza Street Bike Lanes Project has officially launched and we need your input! On December 7, the SFMTA will kick off a two-week virtual open house for the proposed changes. Can you attend and help us build out the bike network in the Richmond District?
The SFMTA’s project will improve the safety and connectivity of those biking on Anza Street between Arguello Boulevard and 30th Avenue, with the potential for a future extension to Masonic Boulevard. Anza Street provides a key east-west connection in the Richmond District and beyond, connecting those biking to destinations like Golden Gate Park, schools, and universities. With the easy potential given the wide street and neighborhood interest, Supervisor Fewer secured funding for the planning, design, and construction of the bike lanes earlier this year. While this project does not include protected bike lanes, this is a step in the right direction as we continue to build out the neighborhood bike network.
The virtual open house will be an interactive online event that you can access throughout the two weeks. Proposed changes will be presented and you can ask questions and provide your feedback at any point. There will also be a collection process for potential pedestrian improvements for the corridor to complement this project. If you want to see the bike network expanded in the Richmond, give your thoughts starting Monday.
