The Richmond Public Works department has installed 10 new “Share the Path” signs along the city’s portion of the San Francisco Bay Trail in response to complaints about conflicts between cyclists, pedestrians and other pathway users.
The Richmond Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee (RBPAC) reported about the new signs on the group’s Facebook page Monday.
Yader Bermudez, director of the city’s Public Works department, confirmed the city installed new signs about three weeks ago after receiving reports from pedestrian and cycling advocacy groups about the pathway conflicts. The signs aim to prevent conflicts from arising by reminding folks to be aware of their surroundings and mindful of others.
“Be safe, be courteous, and enjoy our beautiful Bay Trail!” RBPAC stated on its Facebook page.
