In the fall of 2019, a 4.5-mile separated pathway for cyclists and pedestrians on the upper deck of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge opened, connecting trail users in the counties of Marin and Contra Costa for the first time in the span’s 64-year history. A four-year pilot project began with much fanfare on November 16th, 2019. Automated bicycle and pedestrian counters have been installed on both sides of the bridge, and the number of trail users will help to determine if this pathway becomes permanent, is removed, or is only available to trail users during limited hours or days of the week. For this reason, it is important to show your love for the new pathway by riding or walking it early and often! Scenery from the span is spectacular, and new pathways with wayfinding signage leading up to the bridge on the Richmond side make access simple and straightforward. Improvements from the Marin side are underway.
