“HE DIED FOR OUR SNACKS!”

It’s hard to see, but this curb on MLK is mostly red, so it looks like a towaway zone.
But the signs say forget all that and park for free for four hours:
Prolly the RPD or DPW or SFMTA or some sort of ALPHABET SOUP org should clean off the red / reddish paint but if you say anything about that, then they’ll start begging you for more, ever more money, oh well.
Also note the fresh broken glass on the sidewalk, oh well

The SFMTA Wants to Remove Ever More Parking from Folsom Street: Presenting the Folsom-Essex Bikeway “Improvement” ProjectWednesday, June 18th, 2014
Speaking as somebody with more hours, years, decades and miles on bikes in San Francisco County than any SFMTA Livable Streets person or SFMTA Project Manager or, really, anybody at the sainted SFMTA (with the possible exception of one or two $25 an hour interns that they might have recently hired on), many times what the SFMTA calls an IMPROVEMENT actually doesn’t turn out to be an improvement.
But at that point, the SFMTA becomes seemingly powerless to fix its mistakes, oh well.
Anyway, the project manager behind this effort doesn’t care – all s/he cares about is pushing this thing through. If the project gets approved, that’s success and if it doesn’t, that’s failure. It’s as simple as that.
Oh well. I’ll check out this situation next time I’m down there
All the deets:
“The SoMa area is experiencing rapid residential and commercial growth, and is poised to be among the neighborhoods with the highest bicycle ridership in San Francisco. With bicycling increasing as a means of transportation in SoMa and throughout the city, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is working with the community to increase the safety and comfort of city streets for people biking, while also better organizing our city’s roadways for all modes of travel.
Currently, people bicycling eastbound on Folsom Street must navigate a difficult segment between 2nd and 1st streets where they are forced to ride in a narrow bike lane sandwiched between lanes of vehicle traffic and merge with freeway-bound vehicles.
To enhance bicycle safety and better organize the roadway, the SFMTA proposes to move the Folsom bike lane curbside to eliminate the need for people bicycling to merge with heavy volumes of freeway bound vehicles. The agency will also install a dedicated bicycle traffic signal at the Essex Street intersection to separate through bicyclists from right-turning vehicles and special markings to provide clear direction on where motorists can expect bicyclists to be riding.
Realigning the bikeway will require the removal of seven metered parking spaces on the south side of Folsom Street just east of 2nd Street.
A public hearing on this project will be held on Friday, June 20th at 10:00 AM in City Hall, Room 416.
Please contact Ellen Robinson of the SFMTA at (415) 701-4322 or Ellen.Robinson@sfmta.com with any questions or comments.”
“I am writing to let you and the SBRMBNA know about an improvement to the city’s bike network planned for the Folsom Street between 1st and 3rd streets. The bike lane on this stretch has multiple jogs where eastbound bicyclists and freeway-bound motorists must weave. SFMTA proposes to remedy this by moving the bike lane curbside between 2nd and Essex, with a new bike traffic signal to manage the Folsom/Essex intersection. The project will require removing seven metered parking spaces on Folsom Street. There is a public hearing for this change on Friday, June 20th, for which we have placed postings in the project vicinity. The attached flyer provides a summary of the project and details on the public hearing. Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.
