Bike dude now in charge of screwing up Masonic
The plan involves taking away all the street parking on Masonic between Geary Blvd. and Fell Street to make bike lanes, which means that the city will no longer be able to create an extra lane during commute hours to deal with the traffic: more than 32,000 vehicles a day and more than 12,000 passengers a day on the #43 bus. The project will cost $18 million, but no expense is too great for the city's ongoing jihad against motor vehicles, since we're talking about religion here. And it will probably be done in time for the additional traffic generated by the opening of the new Target store in the old Mervyn's location at Geary and Masonic.
