It’s 7 a.m. and 68° this Monday morning. If today turns out to be like yesterday, we’re in for a treat. Details for the next 10 days can be found here.
The morning commute is how many start their day. Let’s look at news relating to each different mode of transportation.
Here’s one for the bicyclists on Valencia: Last week, the San Jose Mercury News printed an opinion piece urging Governor Jerry Brown to sign a piece of legislation that would require drivers to give bicyclists three feet of space when passing.

Close your eyes and think about how you would like to see I-280. Was is clean chrome? Lush with plants? SocketSite put together a great post of a few design teams’ re-envisioning for the well-trafficked interstate. I can’t tell if it has bike lanes.
Walk SF, the local nonprofit that advocates for pedestrian safety improvements, has hired a new executive director. SF Streetsblog has the scoop.
Here’s a neat video, created by the agents of the Transbay Transit Center, that shows the high-rises being built downtown. Watch it and see the skyline of tomorrow. Next time you’re sunning in Dolores Park with friends, you can point out each project.
Today is Mexican Independence Day! The city will be honoring the day at the new site of The Mexican Museum in the Yerba Buena Gardens Art District at 11:30 a.m. Click here for more information.
