“He put posters on the walls of the conference room, representing the four proposed designs. The members of the committee discussed and scored elements of each one.
The alternatives are:
1). The Wide Sidewalks Alternative. This one has a one-way bike lane on Folsom and a one-way bike lane on Howard
2). The Bicycle Connectivity Alternative. This one has a two-way bike lane on one side of both Folsom and Howard
3). The Transit Focused Alternative. It has a red-striped bus lane on Folsom and one-way bike lanes on both.
4). The Two-Way Traffic Alternative. This design converts both streets to two-way traffic. It has bike lanes on both sides of Folsom but no bike lanes on Howard”
