San Fransisco all ready has road markings called "Sharrows" meaning bikes and cars share a lane, and indicate to the cyclist to ride in the center of the lane. The concrete barrier would not solve the problem, because the driver could still cut around it and make the turn, unless you blocked off the whole ramp, but that would be dumb.
