Any chance it will be open this weekend? Or is this a long term closure?

This is terrible and adds time and distance to my daily bike commute - having to ride in conjested traffic with cars and crossing over highway 101 at Shoreline today was awful!!!! PG&E needs to get this fixed quickly!

Be very careful during the evening commute, since car drivers pay much less attention to bicyclists and pedestrians after sunset. You may want to take Rengstorff instead of Shoreline since the former has better marked bike lanes over Hwy 101.
