- S.F. supervisor pushes to untangle freeway Hairball
By Rachel Swan - Friday Aug 4, 2017
“It’s a mess,” said Supervisor Hillary Ronen, who points out that Highway 101 and Interstate 280 form a spaghetti-like labyrinth around the Portola neighborhood she represents, cutting it off from the rest of the city. Ronen is pushing an idea that some of her colleagues dismiss as illusory, but that she says will make the whole area safer and more attractive: put a chunk of the freeway underground. [...] joining Ronen’s tour that day were members of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, who are angry about a homeless camp that’s spread along the Hairball’s undulating edges, spilling into bike lanes. Some bicyclists have posted videos of themselves weaving around tents and shopping carts — those videos stoked the political debate and put pressure on city officials to act. “Elevated freeways are a design that’s no longer chic,” said coalition spokesman Chris Cassidy, noting that he would gladly support a long-term plan to bury the freeway. [...] there are still a lot of unknowns, like how a dip underground would impact the rest of the system — Highway 101 threads along Bayshore Boulevard, eventually becoming the Central Freeway, which ends at Market and Octavia streets. Earlier this year he asked the Transportation Authority to analyze the costs and challenges of covering a multi-mile swath that stretches from the Alemany Farmers’ Market to the Daly City border. San Francisco completed two major freeway redesigns after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, knocking down the badly damaged double-deck Embarcadero Freeway and later demolishing the overhead U.S. 101 ramp along Octavia Boulevard. [...] he said, the freeway demolition on Octavia helped reconnect the Lower Haight and Hayes Valley neighborhoods with the Civic Center, and transformed Hayes Valley into a chichi pocket of boutique shops, taprooms and expensive homes. The concept of razing or concealing invasive freeways has caught on in many parts of the country, and transportation wonks in San Francisco have their eyes set on several aging stretches of asphalt. Public Works officials periodically sweep out homeless people who camp beneath those overpasses. Ronen, who lives in the Portola and whose husband regularly bikes across the Hairball on his way to work in the public defender’s office, has refused to let cost projections get in the way of her vision.

The network has secured the U.S. rights for three crime-focused shows — “100 Code,” “Shoot the Messenger,” and “Pure” — which will join the previously announced Anna Paquin-fronted “Bellevue” to add to the network’s stash of “primecrime” programming.When a high school hockey star wrestling with his gender identity goes missing and all signs point to foul play, Detective Annie Ryder (Anna Paquin) must unravel all the pieces to this gripping mystery before her own life falls apart.A gritty political-crime thriller centering on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police, “Shoot the Messenger” follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career.
