SGRT dangerous spot

What do you guys do at the dark & narrow tunnel under Whittier Blvd on SGRT? Are we suppose to get off the bike & walk thru it? Today on my way down( 1st time thru) there were about 5 cyclists coming thru towards me super close & fast, it is dark & with sunglass I can hardly see, I got really nervous coming out of the tunnel. Been thinking about that the rest of my ride going south, this tunnel is just waiting for accidents to happen on a busy day. And not soon enough on my return ride, upon arriving the tunnel, I had to stop because a biker just crashed inside the tunnel, someone was on the phone to 911 & ambulance & PM arrived, the biker looks conscious with blood on his face, may have suffered broke bones, his bike's front wheel was destroyed & the fork was in 2 pieces. This is my first time down that way & I was cautious on any new route, but that is a very dangerous spot. Riders be careful!
