From Streetsblog contributor Janel Sterbentz:
On January 27, the Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA) will vote on a bridge toll increase that has the potential to complete the multi-modal pathway from the East Bay to San Francisco.
Now is the time for you to come to the meeting to support the West Span Bicycle Pedestrian Maintenance Pathway. If you can’t make it to the meeting write your representatives today and tell them to make the Bay Bridge the world-class structure it should be – one that offers access for all types of users to the entire Bay Bridge, not just half of it.
Please arrive by 9am as the room may fill by 9:30. Fill out a speaker card and hold a sign/banner. We will have talking points for you as a handout. We need you to speak to how important this facility is to you and to all. You may hear objections that they lack the power to fund the path now: a process is underway to clarify this and restore their power if need be. We want them to take the strongest action possible to ensure the West Span path opens with the East Span, for shore-to-shore access.
