Contra Costa Public Workshops on Priority Projects for Regional Transportation Plan: Pleasant Hill

Thursday, April 21, 2011 - 9:00am to 11:00am

Want to see more bike/ped bridges get built over freeways and busy roadways in Contra Costa?

RTP logoNow through April is cyclists’ time to ask the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) for ‘big-ticket’ bike projects in the upcoming Contra Costa Countywide Transportation Plan-a 25-year planning document that is part of the Regional Transportation Plan “Call for Projects.” We are looking for “big ticket” projects of at least $1 million here.

The Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) is a long-range policy document that guides transportation funding decisions for the nine county Bay Area transportation system over a 25-year horizon. This includes bike projects for both Contra Costa and Alameda Countywide Transportation Plans–and guides what gets built. For example, all projects requesting state or federal funding must be consistent with the Countywide Transportation Plan.

Please attend one of the Contra Costa County meetings and let the CCTA know that you support important bikeway projects in the Countywide Transportation Plan.

‘Big Ticket’ bike projects like the Bike/Ped Bridge
over Treat Blvd in Walnut Creek
require a lot of money to build
and need to be listed in the
Countywide Plan in order to get built
