Masonic intersection plans – overheads
- Stop MTA from taking away all parking on Masonic from Fell to Geary (at least 167 spaces) and reducing the travel lanes during rush hour!
- This $21 million bicycle track project will increase congestion, slow down emergency response time, increase pollution and create a special hardship for residents and businesses on and around Masonic.
- Motor vehicle traffic on Masonic was over 32,000 vehicles per day in 2010; this will increase with the new Target store. Masonic can be improved without creating these dangers, impacts and hardships, and without spending $21 million.
- A better and safer bike route can be created that includes the existing bike lanes along Baker.
The picture below of a raised cycle track in Richmond, British Columbia was provided to Vince by Ken Kwong of SFMTA as an example of how the Masonic tracks would work. Mr. Kwong stated: “Attached is a photo of an urban example similar to how Masonic might look with raised cycletracks; the location is Richmond, British Columbia, Canada.”
The area in the photo sure doesn’t look anything like Masonic to me! – Howard
