The Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) may budget funds this morning to study the possibility of setting up bicycle lanes on the western span of the Bay Bridge, connecting Treasure Island and the Rincon Hill Neighborhood of San Francisco. While the new eastern span is already designed to include pedestrian and bicycle paths, at a cost of about $50 million. Read more about this project in today’s San Francisco Chronicle.
