Save Masonic

 Please help keep our neighborhood a place for all of us – bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists alike

  • Stop MTA from taking away all parking on Masonic from Fell to Geary (at least 167 spaces) and reducing the travel lanes during rush hour!
  • This $21 million bicycle track project will increase congestion, slow down emergency response time, increase pollution and create a special hardship for residents and businesses on and around Masonic.
  • Motor vehicle traffic on Masonic was over 32,000 vehicles per day in 2010; this will increase with the new Target store.
  • When planning was done, no consideration was given to what the impacts would be on adjacent streets: Central, Lyon, Baker – and not even on the cross-streets (Fulton, McAllister, etc.) except where they crossed Masonic.
  • Masonic can be improved without creating these dangers, impacts and hardships, and without spending $21 million.  A better and safer bike route can be created that includes the existing bike lanes along Baker.
