This is news to me – you can fly and have sex at the same time, if you’re a Common Green Darner anyway.
The Dragonflies and Damselflies of San Francisco Bay Area sure have colorful names…
You’d think the Oakland Warriors would be paying for blacktop ball in, IDK, Oakland?
Wonder if they’ll be able to advertise here, the way they fixed things at the (failed? failing? improving?) Willie Brown Academy…
We’ll find out Sept 10th.
IDK, maybe somebody hacked this sign to say what it says. Regardless, this is a big improvement over the 10 MPH sign it used to be just a few days back:
More changes are coming for this area, before 2017, to prevent you from using JFK the way you’re used to…
You have many legal choices here, heading west at Baker – you can go on the bike path or you can go on the left side of the left lane of Fell, or you can go on the right side of the right lane of Fell, or (assuming you’re feeling especially vigorous and can keep up with Frisco’s version of a freeway even though it’s going uphill in this area) you can TAKE THE LANE:
I’ve seen people doing all of these things, but 99% of the time, ppl take the bike path, as they should. And this especially applies to rental bike tourists, who generally don’t seem to be aware of the Golden Gate Park Panhandle Bicycle Path. Hence the wayfinding sign TO PANHANDLE PATH (even though it’s actually pointing exactly AT the path, oh well.
But these signs are kind of small, so I’ll still expect to see tourists on Fell Street oh well. And then on the return trip to their Union Square or Twitterloin hotels, I’ll still expect others to come east on the bike path and then go the wrong way on Fell for a couple blocks until they give up swimming upstream at Divisadero – that’s where the helmetless blond Euros with the 12 weeks of annual vacay generally seem to lose their religion to go the wrong way on, as stated, Frisco’s version of a freeway, oh well…
One supposes. Somewhere around Golden Gate Park?
Let’s see here, they just did their advertising deal with SFUSD.
And the Panhandle blacktop backboards, well they’re all shut down now, getting refurbished. See?
And the Oakland Warriors have been on a somewhat offensive charm offensive in Frisco lately, the better to do battle with these people, as the UCSF Mission Bay people wonder about their future.
I suppose we’ll just have to wait ’til September 10th…
(A pay package of about $130k a year (TCOE – Total Cost of Employee), well that’s pretty well-paid for a low-stress job, non? It’s not like being a coal miner or anything. Correct me if I’m way off on this, of course.)
This proposal certainly would reduce traffic, overall, by a very slight amount. It would also increase westbound traffic on Fulton, and Lincoln too I suppose, by a significant amount. But before our SFMTA does that, it should “daylight” every intersection in the Richmond District – that means taking out a parking space or two on every block so that westbound drivers can see southbound peds approaching crosswalks to get to Golden Gate Park.
Actually, it should do that anyway.
Actually, it should have done that before already.
I’m not talking about talking about daylighting, I’m talking about actually doing it. JMO. (I already know the reasons why our less-than-competent SFMTA hasn’t done so by now, just saying.)
Anyway, consider the knock-on effects afore you shut down JFK is all I’m saying…
This official “SLOW TO 10 MPH” sign was up near Speedway Meadow during Outside Lands 2016, but it’s still there now long after OL’s blown town:
The limit goes back up to 25 MPH near 30th Avenue?
(This trailer doesn’t “see” bikes, AFAIK, unlike some others.)
Changes to the “access” we have to JFK are coming soon, but I don’t know what they are and if this is a part of it.
Our Presidio sometimes records license plate numbers and checks timestamps to see who’s “cutting through” the park (instead of having the Presidio as a destination in itself). The Presidio People think “Cut Through Traffic” is evil, but really, all traffic is cut-through traffic to somebody. Oh well.
If SFGov wants people to use Fulton instead of JFK, there will be some problems with that…
Play your blacktop game somewhere other than the PHBC for a while…
