Pop-up bike lane coming Oct. 2 to Chilco Street

Posted on September 23, 2019 at 4:40 pm by Peter Ibrahim

Enjoy a preview of the upcoming bike lane extension that will help make biking in the Belle Haven community safer and more enjoyable.

As part of the Safe Routes to School program, the City plans to install a temporary bike lane on Chilco Street, between Hamilton Avenue and the railroad tracks. For three days, October 2–4, the temporary bike lane will provide a vision of the new street design. City staff expects to install the permanent bike lane by the end of the year. 

The bike lane provides improved bicycle connectivity and offers a critical connection between
  • The Belle Haven neighborhood
  • Bedwell Bayfront Park and other recreation/open space areas near San Francisco Bay
  • The Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge
  • TIDE Academy High School on Jefferson Drive
  • Other destinations in the Bayfront area

Staff will be onsite October 2, during both morning and afterschool times to answer questions and hear feedback.
