A narrow 5' to 7' wide pedestrian walkway is being proposed to parallel the light rail tracks through the tunnel. Cyclist would be required to walk their bikes along the narrower part of the path.

Here is a solution I think nobody has thought of. Pave the tracks along the length of the right of way where the trail is narrowed. The combined pedestrian walkway and pave trackways would be at the same elevation. Allow cyclist to ride their bikes along the paved segment of the light rail track adjacent to narrower trail segment when trains are not present. With both the trail and trackway on the same elevation cyclist would able to move from the tracks when trans are approaching.

Mixed traffic, only difference being, the mix is composed of bicycles instead of cars and trucks.
