Read the new Mission Creek Bikeway
Bay Trail Connector Study.
July, 2002 - The Mission Creek Bikeway Concept Plan has been approved by the SF Board of Supervisors. You can now view the Complete Plan online.
- The San Francisco Bay Trail Project has identified the Mission Creek Corridor as a connector trail to the spectacular waterfront hiker and biker trail that rings the bay.
- Mission Creek Bikeway was featured in waterfront symposium June 3, 2005 for World Environment Day at the Catellus Center in Mission Bay.
- Educational KIOSK Exhibit in the works at Pier 52 in Mission Bay will feature the bikeway as well as other waterfront projects in the works. The kiosk and additional information on the project can be found at the Madrina Group's website.
What is today merely a disused rail corridor running through a neglected swath
of industrial land in San Francisco's Mission and South of Market neighborhoods
will soon be transformed into a pleasant and purposeful bikeway lined
with much-need green space and public art.
The Mission Creek Bikeway will begin at 16th and Harrison Streets, winding
around the nose of Potrero Hill, crossing 7th Street and the Caltrain
tracks, continuing along the south side of the Mission Creek Channel
and connecting with the new Giants stadium, and, of course, the waterfront.
A spur of the bikeway will extend from the 8th and Townsend traffic
circle along Townsend Street, connecting with the Caltrain station,
where a BikeStation is also being planned.
The Bikeway will reclaim much-needed open space, creating space for
recreation, vegetation, and an opportunity to enhance public awareness
of the environment. The Mission Creek Bikeway will also serve as a critical
transportation link in a city where 1 of 25 adults relies on a bicycle
for daily commuting. With one end in the Mission area a densely populated
neighborhood popular among bicyclists and the other in South of Market
(SOMA) a quickly changing area begging for greater transportation
choices, the Bikeway bridges an important gap in the city's Bicycle
Network. Once completed, a person will be able to ride a bike from most
locations in the Mission district to most locations downtown and in
SOMA and Mission Bay almost entirely on comfortable, convenient bike
paths and bike lanes.
