Eyes on the Street: Bridge Bike Path Is Still Open
Your intrepid Streetsblog reporter braved a few rain drops to check out the Oakland Bay Bridge bike path yesterday afternoon and found it still open, at least partway, despite Caltran’s recent announcement that it would be completely closed until April.
The approach gates were all wide open, and no new signs had been put up. If the path is really going to be closed, it’s not very clear to anyone riding or walking in the area. The sign below has been up for months, and warns only about weekdays.
Maybe bridge workers assumed no one would want to ride the path on such a wet day, but I was far from the only person enjoying the facilities.
So, if your workout itinerary includes a run up the bridge, don’t give up yet.
