The plan would close a "2.3-mile portion of Market Street" and "would open the often-congested roadway to pedestrians and cyclists, though [Superviser] Daly said there would still need to be places where cars and other vehicles could cross." At the same time, there are plans to add bike lanes and improve mass transit, assuring that even if cars aren't banned from the street, significant improvements will be made.
What do you San Franciscans think of this plan? Personally whenever I'm in SF, I try to avoid Market St. like the plague. I hate driving on that street with the massive traffic and crazy intersections. So this plan sounds great to me.
