The platform consists of T-shaped movable barriers that are connected to form a continuous wall. The Road Zipper machine uses a conveyor wheel system with the intention of repositioning the barrier at up to 10mph to create a moveable lane.
Road Zipper will be installed on the north side of the upper deck of the bridge. The throughway will add another section to the planned 500-mile network of bicycle and hiking routes on the Bay trail and will connect trails from Contra Costa and Marin Counties.

7613 Lindsay (LNN) has joined forces with the Bay Area Transportation Authority to deploy its movable barrier on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in San Francisco, California. Called Road Zipper, the solution will intend to create a separate area for bicycles and pedestrians, while giving officials the option to move the barrier when maintenance work is needed.
