seal beach blvd. bridge now 4 lanes

The work is not finished yet and the configuration is not optimal for bikes, but this bridge now has 4 total lanes. Its rideable if traffic is calm and you can hold the lane. Technically there is no shoulder and they marked it 'share the road'. Northbound there are k-rails guarding the right, and southbound there is a curb on your right.

I took this picture on Sept. 16 from North Gate (LW) road, after coming across from the SGRT. Since the wind was 15+ MPH I decided against riding over the bridge.

We rode along North Gate Road to SGRT and back on the 14th, and we could see that the new bridge was almost ready. At least for car traffic, this is a BIG improvement.

Thanks for the update!
