Freeway Bus Stop, 94132

Friday, September 12th, 2014

Your reward for staring at eight lanes of freeway is the occasional bus to take you away – seems fair enough

To me, this looks like a rural bus stop, something out of a scene out of North by Northwest, except it’s on a divided highway, a freeway with four lanes in each direction…

More Pedestrian Signals Coming to 19th Avenue in the Sunset

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Nowadays, it seems that every intersection on the 19th Avenue double fine zone in the Sunset District has either:

1. a dedicated pedestrian signal (with a countdown timer thrown in as a bonus), like this one on Ortega : or

2. evidence of recent work indicating that a pedestrian signal is a coming soon, like this one on Santiago.

Hurray!

At Long Last, Pedestrian Signals Installed on 19th Avenue in the Sunset

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Don’t get out much to this part of the Westside Fog Belt, so this is the first I’ve seen of pedestrian signals at some intersections of 19th Avenue, aka State Highway One.

Of course, this improvement comes a little late for some

Look for them, tirelessly counting down 24/7, on Park Presidio and the Sunset District part of 19th Avenue.

Hurray, I suppose.
