Update: We are disappointed to share this meeting has been canceled by the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. More information will be shared in the near future as our campaign continues to connect the entire Bay Bridge span with a path from Oakland to downtown San Francisco.
Mark July 23 in your calendars because you won’t want to miss this meeting. After two and a half years of technical design work and feasibility studies, the project team is ready to unveil the preferred concept for the Bay Bridge West Span people path to finally connect Oakland to downtown San Francisco — by bike.
Bay Bridge West Span Path Public Meeting
Monday, July 23 — 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Bay Area Metro Center: 375 Beale St.
This is the last step before this design would be able to move forward into environmental review, approvals then eventually, construction. The project team, led by planners and engineers at Arup, have been whittling down multiple options for the Yerba Buena Island connection, the path on the actual West Span and the final touchdown in South of Market. Given the complexity of the project, their work has been highly technical but driven by public feedback from the earlier open house in January 2016.
Now, they’re finally ready to present the preferred design in full detail, incorporating brand new renderings, a 3D model and even virtual reality tours to bring what we’ve been imagining for years one step closer to reality. With estimates of 10,000 people biking on this path daily at full build-out, this would be the Bay Area’s most iconic, signature bicycle project in history.
Join Arup and the Bay Area Toll Authority at a public meeting to see and experience what the Bay Bridge West Span will look like. After this, we’ll be working closely with our partners at Bike East Bay to rally support and continue our campaign towards victory: to finally bridge the bay by bike.
