Looking at this picture of SFO, I noticed what looks like a temporary (and very narrow!) runway 29 to the right of 28R. I couldn't find anything on the airport diagram. What is this for? Is it still there?

It may have been a STOL runway... IAH use to have a taxiway east of 15R-33L designated as one for Twin Otters and other STOL aircraft. Since these aircraft have sort of fallen out of use, so have the runways...
