While the vibrant West Alameda/Oakland corridor contains many key destinations, bicyclists and pedestrians have few and unattractive options to cross the Oakland Estuary: the narrow Posey Tube walkway, or the circuitous Park Street Bridge. In response, advocates at Bike Walk Alameda have proposed a movable bike / pedestrian bridge as the most practical, convenient, safe and enjoyable design. “Bridge the Gap” campaign supporters include bicycle advocacy groups and community leaders from both sides of the Estuary, who point to project benefits such as congestion reduction, health and recreation, access for underserved populations and increased economic activity.
