Bay Area Bottleneck

New, 1 comment

With the new Bay Bridge set to finally open next week it's time to start discussing its inadequacies. Earlier this week a San Francisco Planning and Urban Research Association forum was held to discuss transportation capacity problems that the Bay Bridge and the Transbay Tube will experience in the coming years. Capacities are expected to reach a maximum in 2035 for each pathway during peak periods. Some relief options discussed include: a "contraflow configuration" on the bridge during rush hour, increasing BART's fleet, and extending a bicycle lane the entire length across the Bay Bridge.
