California California Senate Passes SB1061 - We're Another Step Closer to Bike Access Across the Entire Bay Bridge!

in

Senate Bill 1061 (D-Hancock) was passed by the California Senate today.  It is now moving on to the Assembly committees for review before it would be voted on by the full Assembly.  This bill would allow toll revenues from the region to fund a Bicycle-Pedestrian-Maintenance pathway on the west span of the Bay Bridge, completing shore to shore bike and pedestrian access from San Francisco to Oakland.  The Bay Area Bicycle Coalition would like to thank State Senator Loni Hancock for sponsoring SB1061 and the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, East Bay Bicycle Coalition, California Bicycle Coalition and our numerous other partners who have supported this bill.  Together we are making the dream of shore to shore access for bicycles and pedestrians a reality.  We will keep working to get this bill passed by the Assembly so make sure to check back for new updates.
