    Sooo… how are people that don’t drive this every day supposed to know which lane to be in? Are they replacing it with a different sign?

      The entire Cesar Chavez project is predicated on making things nicer for the neighbors and the few bicyclists who might use it. The fact that thousands of people rely on that road every day to get to work was never a consideration. According to the City’s own projections the street will become non-functional in a few years, but those projections were not made public until after the public comment period was over. Instead Andres Powers told everyone that there would be no deterioration in its traffic capacity. That is how the Planning Department works — they lie and they refuse to listen to the concerns of people who rely on cars.

      Nobody reads signs anymore anyway; you just listen to the Google Maps robot.

      If they drive this everyday, and don’t know which lane to get in, well….

    ….Just another nail in the coffin of the Mission…. It won’t be much longer before the old Mission is completely destroyed and replaced with the new, rich hipster & yuppie infested hell-hole. It may still look like the real Mission, but this place, which was once rich in it’s own unique culture is quickly losing everything that makes it what it is. The hipsters & out-of-town trust fund babies are continuing to pour into the mission and raise the rent so high that all the natives are forced to move out. It’s sad, depressing and disgusting to watch the neighborhood that I love & call home, being torn apart and trampled over right in front of my eyes…..

      I know! Those signs were a part of OUR identity!!!!

      You can’t possibly think that improving Chavez St is a BAD thing for the neighborhood, can you? If you want to complain about gentrification, there are more than ample opportunities to do so. But if you ACTUALLY live in this neighborhood, then you know what an utter terror crossing Chavez on foot is. This is not only going to make Chavez much safer and more attractive, but is going to make it much safer for families to get to Precita Park, make it easier to support the businesses south of Chavez on Mission, and so on. Complain all you want about what is happening on Valencia, but, really, improving Chavez St is a BAD thing for the neighborhood?

      • blah says:

        what sfnola said. I live a block and a half away from the bottomless pit of filth and misery that is this street. If this is the “real” Mission, then the real Mission is a rancid asshole. Give me the fake Mission, ASAP, please.
