2019.02.08 San Rafael Bridge Care
The San Rafael Bridge in the Bay Area is literally falling apart (large chunks of concrete falling on the deck below), most likely due to a bad retrofit. In the mean time, they're spending $50M on a dedicated bike lane, and giving up a lane (shoulder), for a 5.5 mile long bridge that would be more like 10 miles to get from anywhere to anywhere else -- in a windy stretch that no one wants to ride (or spend 3 hours walking) anyways. They keep punishing drivers for non-existent riders/pedestrians, so that they can increase traffic problems, and ask for more money to fix it.
