The Transportation Authority Board last month allocated $150,000 for the SFMTA to study the feasibility of installing bike lanes or a bike path around Lake Merced Park. This study was initiated at the request of District 7 Supervisor and Transportation Authority Commissioner Norman Yee with our Prop K Neighborhood Program funds.
The agency will explore two options:
- Extending or rerouting the existing multi-use path into a grassy area along the south edge of the lake.
- Installing a bike facility on Lake Merced Boulevard that connects with existing bike facilities on John Muir Drive.
The SFMTA anticipates that the final report—including key findings, quick build and long term recommendations, next steps, and a funding strategy—will be done by June 2020.
