Castro Street to Point Molate Bay Trail Connection Community Workshop

From EBBC:

Come to this community workshop and share your ideas regarding the proposed Bay Trail connection between Castro Street and the existing trail under the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge. The Bay Trail connection to Point Molate is a planned multi-use trail that will provide non-motorized access from Richmond to Point Molate. The Trail will close a roughly one-mile gap in the San Francisco Bay Trail with a planned future connection to Marin County. The goal of the project is to provide an off-street trail that is safe, continuous and accessible for pedestrians and bicyclists. The current route along surface streets and Interstate 580 shoulders does not provide a safe route for bicycles and does not accommodate pedestrians. This workshop is occurring at the beginning of the planning process and your involvement is encouraged.

In short order, the SFMTA made some very noticeable improvements, […]
