As expected, the San Francisco Planning Commission certified the
Environmental Impact Report for the city’s far-reaching bike plan.

proposal now goes before the San Francisco Municipal Transportation

making other improvements intended to make the city safer and more
convenient for cyclists, has been held up by court order. A Superior
Court judge issued an injunction three years ago to halt the plan until
a thorough environmental review was conducted.
