Final decision on bike injunction could come in hearing next month 

The longstanding legal injunction against bike-related improvements in The City could finally come to a permanent end next month.

Superior Court Judge Peter Busch, who installed the injunction in 2006, will hear arguments from The City’s Attorney’s Office to unconditionally lift the ban at a hearing scheduled for June 22.

In November, Busch lifted the injunction on a conditional basis, and The City has since embarked on a number of improvement projects. The hearing next month could solve the issue once and for all.

The injunction came as a result of a lawsuit filed against The City by local resident Rob Anderson. Anderson successfully argued that San Francisco did not conduct the necessary environmental studies needed to implement its Bike Plan, a document that proposes 34 miles of new bike lanes in The City.
