The Presidio Trust is installing bike lanes at several locations around the park to improve safety for bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers. Work will be completed after roadways are resurfaced in late 2020/early 2021. A few of the locations are highlighted below.
LOCATION #1: ADVISORY BIKE LANE ON THE MAIN POST
We’re installing a test Advisory Bike Lane on Graham Street between Sal Street and Lincoln Boulevard (near the Visitor Center) after the roadway is repaved in the spring of 2021.
Advisory Bike Lanes are desaigned for narrow, low-volume, low-speed roads. We selected this option for Graham Street to provide a bicycle connection through the Main Post while maintaining accessible parking for tenants and visitors. We’re seeking your input on how well the Advisory Bike Lane is working (see below).
How Do Advisory Bike Lanes Work?
- Vehicles share the center lane while bicyclists have priority within the edge lanes.
- Parking remains on the east side of the roadway.
- When two cars traveling in opposite directions approach each other, they merge into the bike lane to pass.
- When cyclists are present in the bike lane, drivers must yield to the cyclists before entering the bike lane. This is just like entering a bike lane to make a right turn.

We’re eager to hear your feedback on your current experience using Graham Street and the future Advisory Bike Lane installation.

After the Advisory Bike Lane is installed in 2021 we will measure how it’s functioning and solicit additional feedback.
LOCATION #2: SEPARATED BIKE LANES AT TWO SITES ON LINCOLN BOULEVARD
(example for illustrative purposes only)
Separated bike lanes (aka cycle track, protected bike lanes, Class IV bike facility) provide physical separation, in addition to pavement markings, between the bicycle lane and vehicular travel lane. They are more welcoming to most than a typical bike lane.
We’re installing separated bike lanes at two locations:
- Lincoln Boulevard between Bowley Street and Pershing Drive near Baker Beach
- Main Post between Montgomery Street and Tourney Avenue.
