West Portal traffic changes approved under new pilot

By Jerold Chinn : sfbay – excerpt

City transit officials (SFMTA Board) approved a pilot program that they hope will speed up Muni trains entering West Portal station.

The plan includes restricting private autos from making a left turn from northbound West Portal Avenue onto westbound Ulloa Street from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., the peak hours of the morning commute, a left turn restriction on southbound Lenox Way onto eastbound Ulloa, and will restrict autos from making U-turns at all times of the day.

Liz Brisson, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency project manager in charge of the pilot, said the block of West Portal Avenue between Vicente and Ulloa streets will become a transit-only lane during the morning commute..

The San Francisco Council District of Merchants, the West Portal Merchants Association, and the Greater West Portal Neighborhood Association, penned a joint in a letter asking the SFMTA to delay the pilot for 90 days and to reevaluate looking at installing traffic lights at the intersection and relocating the 48 transit stop.

Karl Aguilar, manager of Papenhausen Hardware, told the board that merchants had already gone through a major construction project and that merchants: “These businesses can’t weather large disruptions.”

President of the Board of Supervisors Norman Yee, who represents the West Portal neighborhood, said in a letter dated May 9 that he was in support of the left turn restriction on Lenox Way and the U-turn restriction, but not in support of other parts of the pilot:..

The supervisor was also in favor of delaying the pilot start as traffic volumes are usually slower in the neighborhood as many schools are out for summer vacation…(more)

Ask yourself what could San Francisco do to save the businesses that are struggling to survive? I’ll bet taking out parking spaces and reduce traffic lanes would not be at the top or your list to save retail.

If, however, you wanted to close stores to make way for your new condos and office buildings, removing parking, stopping traffic and rearranging bus stops would probably be the first thing you would do.

So, who is the SFMTA Board working for?
