I just rode through the park on my first commute in a little while and it looks like they are going to tear JFK up from before the De Young to the intersection at 25th Ave. This is totally going to screw up my commute that I already have way too many lame excuses for not doing. Does anyone know the timeline / extent of the construction or have a suggestion for an alternate route. I go from 33rd and Fulton to Market and 1st street.
You could just take cabrillo to arguello, take arguello into the park and turn left at the three-way stop at the top of that little hill. stay in the bike lane (which runs against traffic) and eventually that street dumps you out at JFK at the foot of the park.
On my way home I saw the sign that was put up announcing the construction project and it looks like it is scheduled to go through the end of November. looks like its Jackhammers and diesel smoke for at least a month.
I rode on JFK yesterday after work to go get some brew with a friend at Waizeema (sp). I have to say that the new asphalt is nice and smooth. Now they just need to get all the cones, trucks/machines, and congestion out of there and it will be great.
