> The lane on the Richmond Bridge was taken decades ago for a water pipe (emergency connection between EBMUD and Marin water during one of the droughts that emptied most of Marin's lakes). It wasn't done specifically for the bike lane. Not sure if the pipe is still there.

Yes, and it's long gone.

>They removed the pipe in the mid or late eighties IIRC. The upper deck never went back to 3 traffic lanes.

Neither did the lower deck, although it never had a pipeline.

> The bridge is barely wide enough for 3 driving lanes with no shoulders.

The bridge was built with three lanes on both the upper and lower decks (and no "shoulders"). This changed two two lanes with the installation of the aforementioned pipeline. The upper deck is still two lanes, with the lane occupied by the pipeline now cordoned off for the bike lane. The former third lane on the lower deck is now activated only for evening rush hour use.
