East Bay Bicycle Coalition joins Fourth Bore Coalition in lawsuit against Caltrans

On November 13, 2007, EBBC and the Fourth Bore Coalition (FBC) filed a lawsuit against Caltrans and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) on the grounds that the proposed 4th Bore does not comply with the California Environmental Quality Act. You can view a copy of the petition that FBC filed in Superior Court.

RSR Bridge

Caltrans has been dragging its feet on implementing bike access to the shoulder area, as required by the BCDC permit.

On February 13, 2008, EBBC meets with MTC and Caltrans with the hope of approving a movable barrier on the upper deck of the Richmond/San Rafael Bridge. This compromise provides bicycle and pedestrian access at all hours except peak commute period in the morning. EBBC is optimistic that the solution will meet Caltrans' criteria and the MTC's funding and political will.
