Many years gone and many memories gained from San Francisco’s Upper Great Highway throughout my 85 years living in The City.
With the holiday season upon us, we are all craving a sense of comfort, familiarity and normalcy. We want to see our family and friends, share meals and be together. But these aren’t normal times, and this new surge is the most dangerous we’ve seen since the earliest days of the pandemic.
To allow plenty of space for people to socially distance and get some outdoor exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic, Upper Great Highway from Sloat Boulevard to Lincoln Way has been closed for months to vehicular traffic.
The meeting ostensibly was for SFCTA to present and discuss various possibilities for the Upper Great Highway’s future, but it was the most biased, agenda-driven presentation I have ever witnessed, and it quickly became clear that from SFCTA’s perspective – the permanent closure option – is fete accompli.
