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.

Pretty clear what is going to happen here. Cyclists will just keep on riding through the tunnel on the narrowed trail. 5' is enough space, although passing would require you to come pretty much to a stop. It will certainly be quicker to keep riding than take a longer, circuitous on-street trail that will inevitably require waiting 2 minutes to cross Wisconsin. Planners should acknowledge that their 'walk bike through tunnel' sign will be ignored and replace it with a 'cyclists yield to pedestrians' sign.
