Streetsblog SF reports today that the Green Wave signal timing on Valencia St in San Francisco will be made permanent. Traffic lights are optimized for travel at 13mph which not only gives bicyclists all green lights but also encourages motorists to travel at the same speed, making those dangerous transitions from the bike lane to the motor vehicle lane less harrowing.
Spruce and Pine Streets would make great candidates for experimenting with the Green Wave in Philadelphia. Perhaps it could be piloted on one segment to measure its impact - i.e. Pine St between 13th and Front.
