San Rafael, California: Cyclists Dismiss Idea For Cars Using Bike Lane On Richmond-San Rafael Bridge during rush hour

There is already a plan in place to create a third lane on the upper deck as well, but it’s intended for bikes and pedestrians. The four-year pilot program would utilize a movable barrier, much like what’s on the Golden Gate Bridge. The idea being floated now by the Transportation Authority of Marin (TAM) is to move the barriers during morning commute hours to let car traffic flow, and then move it back for the rest of the day for bikes and walkers. While this seems like a great way to speed up traffic, not everyone is happy with it.
