Indiana Street Bikeway Project
The goal of the Indiana Street Bikeway Project is to create a safe and comfortable north-south bike route connection in the Dogpatch Neighborhood. Indiana Street (San Francisco Bicycle Route 7) had no bike lanes between 23rd Street to Cesar Chavez, due to the one-way vehicle traffic heading north on Indiana Street that vehicles use to access the I-280 on-ramp, near 25th Street. People riding bikes have historically used Minnesota Street, as an alternative route to avoid the one-way northbound traffic on Indiana Street from Cesar Chavez to 25th Street.
The SFMTA implemented changes in October 2019 to improve bike safety on Indiana Street from Cesar Chavez to 23rd Street so that people on two wheels have a more connected and intuitive route to use on this corridor. These improvements provide a better, connected bike facility, not only for those in the Dogpatch neighborhood, but also for those who travel from the Bayview and Mission Bay neigborhoods.
The design includes bike lanes on Indiana Street from Cesar Chavez to the two-way turnaround, slightly north of the I-280 on-ramp.
- From Cesar Chavez to 25th Street, the design includes a standard bike lane in each direction [pdf]. With the new bike lanes, an existing travel lane will be removed to accomodate other road users.
- From 25th Street to to the two-way turnaround, slightly north of the I-280 on-ramp, the design includes a turn-way bike lane [pdf]
Just north of the proposed two-way cycle track and south of 23rd Street includes upgraded sharrow markings and speed humps to deter speeding on the corridor.
