Drivers Appear to be Responding Well to Latest Change at Fell Street Arco – A Green Bike Lane

Well BIKE NOPA and Streetsblog SF were out there on Fell Street yesterday to see DPW painting the Fell Street bike lane, or the bulk of it, green.

And here’s the result, cars queueing up in a special lane created earlier this year. See? They seem to finally be figuring things out:

Find some history mastubatory fantasies of one Joshua Hart here. (Apparently, he’s a Golden God, or something: “Fix Fell Wins Green Bike Lane on Fell Street“) Anyway, the real history is out there if you want to look for it.

Is this MISSION ACCOMPLISHED for the Fell Street ARCO? I don’t know. The whole idea was to take out parking spaces so that drivers waiting for gasoline wouldn’t queue up in the bike lane and that appeared to be how it was working yesterday. The big issue was getting the residents in the area to give up a few parking spaces – that was one of the hold ups.

It’s not immediately obvious what more the City can do at this point. The open question is how drivers will behave over the coming days, weeks and months.

On it goes…
