Oak Street Bike Lane Gets New Pylons
The Oak and Fell Bikeways Project continues to evolve, as the Oak Street bike lane now sports some new soft-hit pylons to further separate it from auto traffic.

The pylons -- and there are just six of them on a stretch of Oak between Divisadero and Scott -- were installed this week. The 3-block bike lane itself was installed just a month ago, complementing its westward counterpart on Fell Street between Scott and Broderick. With the pylons in place, remaining tasks include installing concrete barriers on the Fell Street lane, building sidewalk bulbouts at various corners, and reconfiguring parking spaces on side streets. This is all budget-dependent, of course. If all goes well, the project should be completed later this year.
