While a bike lane across the wind-lashed western span of the Bay Bridge may be years away, a similarly enticing path across the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge could open as soon as mid-November. Every weeknight, crews install 1-meter blocks of concrete along the right-hand shoulder of the upper deck, forming what will ultimately be a 4-mile barrier against two lanes of westbound traffic. Built in sections that each weigh 1,575 pounds and are designed to prevent water from pooling and damaging the deck, the rail will stretch from East Francisco Boulevard in San Rafael to link with another path along the north side of Interstate 580. “We’re trying to install 2,000 (feet) a night,” said construction foreman Alfonso Gonzales, shouting over the din of machinery as he stood on the shoulder of the bridge Thursday night.

Twice in the seven years he has driven electric cars, he’s run out of juice on the road and had to be towed to a charging station. “It becomes an economic justice issue and an equity issue,” Wolfe said of renters and their lack of access to car chargers. “People can’t run cables across the sidewalk.” His predicament illustrates gaps in California’s electric-vehicle charging infrastructure that clean-car advocates say could limit the state’s … [Read more...] about Californians are buying up electric cars.
