That’s the design so far for the “Fauntleroy Way Green Boulevard” plan – two lanes each way, a partial cycle track, and a median if utilities allow, among other safety and beautification components. $1.3 million to finish the design is in the 2014 budget just finalized by the City Council (more backstory in our report from last Monday). SDOT told us earlier this month that they expect at least one community meeting about the design early next year; the last one was in 2012. Other budget changes include $100,000 for Delridge Way “multi-modal corridor development” planning, explained here. You can see the full list of council changes here; lots more budget documentation here.

  1. Cycletrack? Wa-HOOOOOO. That’s a sweet bonus on top of something that will go a long way to easing the “Welcome to Beirut” aspect of that stretch of road… #stoked. :D
    (just wanted to say something positive before the angry money/budget comments start flying.)

  2. This is great. I can’t wait for this to be completed. What an ugly stretch in its current state.

  8. This will be so much safer to walk, drive, bike and navigate! This is the piece that wasn’t funded when they built the bridge!
