The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the Department of Public works will get $685,000 from the state for various pedestrian and bicycle projects.

The SFMTA has allocated $334,000 of the money, which is allotted through the state’s Transportation Development Act every year, for painting bike lanes, bike paths and “sharrows”(shared roadway marks), and for a bicycle-sharing program.

The money allocated for the bicycle projects would not be spent until the bicycle injunction is lifted, according to a resolution (PDF) introduced on Monday by the Board of Supervisors to formally accept the money.

$41,000 will go to bicycle sharing programs, education events, brochures, fliers, maps, public outreach, advertisements and other measures to promote safe bicycling.

Meanwhile, DPW will use $155,000 to repair sidewalks and another $155,000 for planning and designing curb ramps throughout the city.
