I’m guessing no, they do not.
I suppose I harp on this Trader Joe’s issue…
Not much has changed here since earlier this year, except now illegal u-turn drivers are getting stuck all perpendicular on Masonic, owing to the City Target West lower parking lot’s appeal to shoppers this holiday season:
There _is_ a left turn only green arrow where the whole Geary / Anza intersection comes to a stop to let three to four Target shoppers make a left or U turn, but this unique approach is failing.
Any solutions to this one, SFMTA?
On it goes…
This is heavy lift – garnering 4.5 Yelp stars at a bakery in the somewhat dreary, windswept Western Addition.
Find it inside the Super Mira Market corner sto’
Get up to speed here.
The limit here, betwixt Pine and Geary, is 30 MPH
This is poor planning.
This is San Francisco.
Here’s the view from the north…
…and here’s the view from the south:
Mind you, this is after SFGov originally “planned” things and also after SFGov “fixed” things by “giving” a lane of Masonic to TJ’s.
So southbound Masonic, the Great Connector betwixt Pine and Geary and Pine and Turk and Pine and Fell, and eventually Lincoln, goes down to one lane, oh well.
Mind you, not all the ppl in the slow lane want to shop at TJ’s – some are just stuck there until the fast lane opens up. This of course is also a symptom of the problem.
The latest in fusion flatware:
And here’s the caboose of this jaywalking / jay-running train:
I’ve been tilting at this windmill for a while now. At first on SFist back about 2007 or so and then on this tiny blog. The first TJ’s shopper death came a few years back. The next will come tomorrow or next year or in another five years, something like that.
What’s that, the speed limit here is 25 MPH and cars come through “speeding” all the time? Well, not really. Average speed for southbound traffic is fairly low. And for northbound, it’s not all that fast either. And oh, the limit on this stretch of Masonic is 30 MPH.
What’s that, Planning and DPW and the all-knowing, all-seeing SFMTA have a plan for Masonic and it’s coming soon? Well, not really. The project wasn’t as “shovel-ready as promised so they’ve loaned the Masonic-designated pork for other stuff. A “new” Masonic will eventually come, but not above Geary and TJ’s and all the photos you can see are all from north of Geary.
That’s the update for 2015.
