It was a Bad Day for RSR Bridge Advocates

RSR Bridge and Ferry

Public access by ferry over the Bay was severed soon after dedication of the Richmond San Rafael Bridge in 1957. Now Caltrans is blocking a plan to continue the Bay Trail across the RSR Bridge.

In an unexpected maneuver, Caltrans rejected the preferred proposal to accommodate bicyclists, along with a third traffic lane, on the RSR Bridge at the February 13, 2008 Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) meeting.
