*Action Alert* Emeryville 40th St/Shellmound Bridge Safety

December 1, 2009 - 7:15pm

Traffic lanes on the 40th St/Shellmound Bridge were reduced from 2 to 1 in each direction in Sept 2008 to provide a buffer for cyclists. Due to complaints from Emery Go Round and Bay Street shopping center management about traffic congestion the City of Emeryville is studying whether to return lane striping to the way it was. Even though staff is recommending to keep the lane configuration the same it is extremely important the the public speaks out against this challenge to cyclist safety. The city council will consider this at their meeting Tuesday night.
