I have a 100 mile ride/race in a month, and I want to get a little more serious, and maybe eventually do a cat 5 race without getting dropped badly. This bridge (deemed tallest in the state of TX) seems perfect for me to go to town... However, they're each oneway highways, and one of them doesn't have a shoulder. So if I were to do intervals, I would probably go back and forth on the one that does have shoulders, meaning I would have to ride counter-traffic on the shoulders. I couldn't find any state law that prohibits this... But more importantly would it be a safety concern? The shoulders on both sides are 6' wide, easy. I was thinking I could climb opposite to traffic, go back down with traffic, and repeat.
Comment: rainbow bridge, Port Arthur, TX; the bridge I'm talking about is on the left.
