The sidewalks are wide and high. Motorists have to be careful not to crash into each other head-on or hit the high curb. Speeding across it is not in their best interest. I always feel like I've got it made when walking across it.

yep i was going to say, as i've been "pushed" into that curbing, that the road seems too tight for side by side driving and the walkway looks easier to get across.

Unless the OP's thought is to have something like they have over the dam with add'l barriers in place for walkers?

Very tight to be 4-laned, but the sidewalk seems fine. Maybe be aware of a large truck's mirrors when he's hugging the sidewalk to avoid being in both lanes.

For a bridge built in the 1920's or so, I think they did a pretty good job into making it 2 lanes each way along with a more than sufficient sidewalk for pedestrians.

I can't be the only one who would much rather look at the gervais st bridge than walk over it, especially at night.
