Advisory Bike Lane in the Presidio

​Advisory bike lanes (ABL) are a great way to share limited roadway – they provide park cyclists access to new parts of the park, and they help us make the most of limited space in the park.

Project Status

The Presidio installed its first ABL – and the first ABL in California! – in May 2021 as part of the Parkwide Paving project. The new installation is now being evaluated through a study with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) which will evaluate how people travel on the roadway and their perception of the new treatment at two different time intervals – six-months and 24-months – after the installation. The evaluation will be used by the Presidio to determine how the roadway is working for all users and – combined with other studies by FHWA – to establish if the treatment should be used throughout the country.

Survey Open

The Presidio is conducting a survey to evaluate the Advisory Bike Lane (ABL) on Graham Street now through February 7, 2022. The survey is an electronic form with fifteen questions that is expected to take 5-10 minutes.
