It's a go! Bike-Ped path set to open on Richmond-San Rafael Bridge

By Mark Prado

When the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge Bike/Pedestrian path opens Nov. 16, it will mark the first time in Northern California history that there will be bike and pedestrian access connecting the East Bay with Marin County.

Bike enthusiasts have been rooting to make this happen, and the route will serve as a link in the San Francisco Bay Trail.

The bridge path will be a four-year pilot project and will be analyzed at the end of the period.

The movable barrier that will divide automobiles from those on foot was installed during the last several weeks. MTC's Mark Jones produced this video detailing the effort.
