Wiggle under construction this summer

Construction on the Wiggle Neighborhood Green Corridor Project is beginning this summer! Construction will start with the traffic diverter at Fell and Scott, and will eventually include new curb ramps, pedestrian bulbouts, landscaping, raised crosswalks, and permeable paving along the Wiggle bicycle path.

Construction will occur between summer and winter 2017, Monday-Friday between 7 am and 4 pm. Weekend work is allowed, but not anticipated. 

Construction will begin at Fell and Scott, generally continue southeast along the Wiggle, and conclude at the intersection of Church and Duboce.

Ford GoBike bike share coming to the neighborhood

Bay Area Bike Share is expanding, funded by sponsor Ford Motor Company, and the system is being re-named Ford GoBike.  The seven-year agreement was announced in September 2016.

From 2017-2018, bike share in San Francisco will grow from 328 to 4,500 bicycles, thanks to the fiscal sponsorship.

In our neighborhood, many bike share stations are on the way. While some of the stations are proposed to be installed on the street along a designated bike route (in green in the map), the one at Steiner and Hayes was proposed to be off a bike route and installed on the sidewalk instead.

We have requested a review of this location, in the context of all the other stations in the neighborhood, to be presented at our upcoming June meeting by a representative of Ford GoBike.

Phase 2 station locations currently going through SFMTA approval

Wiggle improvements coming soon

SFMTA has updated us about the plans for the Wiggle Bicycle Route improvement project.

The construction contract has been officially awarded, and SFMTA expects to give the notice-to-proceed to the construction contractor in mid-May.  Construction will conclude by the end of December.

The bulbout construction at Fell/Scott will occur this summer.  The extra-large bulbout at Scott and Fell will act as a traffic diverter, requiring southbound automobile traffic on Scott to turn on Fell, and preventing westbound traffic on Fell from turning left onto Scott.

Traffic signals on Divisadero were retimed in January between O’Farrell and Haight Street.  This improvement will help make Divisadero flow more smoothly so that it becomes the preferred cross-town route for drivers who use Scott Street or other parallel residential streets.

The intersection of Scott and Page will incorporate textured paving on the pavement to highlight pedestrian crossings and encourage slow traffic through the intersection.
