This project is officially haunted.

With all the delays, starting with design, causing the project to double in cost and now the final segment being rescheduled four different install dates. TEN years to build one bike bridge!!!!

I think I'll stay away from using it.

I wonder if it was built on an ancient burial ground...

This bike bridge is a perfect example of the incompetence of the multiple city councils Palo Alto has had for the past 10 years. Typical liberal government that can't get things done, yet spend plenty of money on people and talk.

This whole structure looks too low. When you enter 101 at San Antonio it looks like a tall truck or bus would hit it's head. Something is wrong there. The base should be moved further from the freeway so that the area over the entry lane has more room.
