Going Car-Free on Twin Peaks
July 19, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Thanks to hundreds of supporters who signed petitions, the Twin Peaks Figure 8 Redesign Project Pilot was unanimously approved by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board in April.
Now, an open space has been created to make walking and biking safer. Celebrate the new car-free connection along the scenic east side of Twin Peaks Boulevard your advocacy made possible!
As a joint departmental effort of the SFMTA and San Francisco Recreation and Parks, this two-year Pilot will transform the currently underused Twin Peaks Blvd. to accommodate all forms of travel, while improving access and connection between the Bay Area Ridge Trail and Twin Peaks Trail systems. The Pilot will convert the west side of the figure 8 road to two-way vehicle traffic, and dedicate the eastern half to people on foot and bicycle, eliminating all potential dangerous conflicts with vehicles.
The Pilot is scheduled to break ground Monday, July 11th and Walk SF and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition invite you to a celebration walk to preview this new open space.
Space is limited; RSVP required.
