Open House and Public Hearing August 27, 2019
Page Street is an important corridor for the Hayes Valley / Lower Haight neighborhoods because of its connectivity to John Muir Elementary School, parks and other destinations. It is also a popular east-west bicycle route, where there are often 1.5x more people on bikes than in cars headed downtown in the morning commute. While the SFMTA has made recent changes to improve safety and additional sidewalk changes are planned for 2020 through the Page Street Neighborway project, more is needed to address directly the impacts of chronic vehicle congestion. Based on several years of engagement and outreach with the community, the Page Street Bikeway Improvements Pilot is advancing an expanded proposal for an 18-month pilot project of circulation changes and bikeway upgrades using temporary materials.
Project elements include:
- Reduced vehicle traffic near John Muir Elementary School by prohibiting vehicles from entering eastbound Page Street at Webster Street
- A protected downhill bikeway and an uphill bike lane on Page Street between Octavia Boulevard and Laguna Street by converting that block to one-way westbound only for vehicles
- The uphill bike lane would extend 3 blocks from Octavia Boulevard to Webster Street
- Further reduced vehicle traffic and conflicts on Page Street by prohibiting left-turns and westbound through-traffic at Octavia Boulevard
- Support for transit on Haight Street by enhancing bus stop access and discouraging traffic from diverting to Haight Street during the day
