Emeryville City Council Supports West Span Path

December 15, 2009 - 7:15pm

The Emeryville City Council will consider a resolution to support a multi-use path on the west span of the Bay Bridge. The Council will most likely approve this item. You can come to voice your support and reinforce the major importance of the path.

The meeting will start at 7:15 with this item (#VIII B) towards the end of the evening's agenda.

BIG CHANCE * Bay Bridge Bike Path * Weds, Jan 27 deadline

January 27, 2010 - 9:30am to 11:30am

Temporary end of East Span Pathway

Will this pathway ever reach San Francisco?

The current toll increase proposals are essential, but fail to address needed transportation improvements. Now is the time to address funding the West Span Bicycle-Pedestrian-Maintenance Pathway and expand transbay transit capacity.
