Join Bike East Bay Advocacy Director Robert Prinz, and advocates from Bike Hayward and Walk Bike Eden for this group ride to the official ribbon cutting event for the Hesperian Boulevard Corridor Improvement Project (info here).
This project features new, painted bicycle lanes on Hesperian Boulevard, bus boarding islands with bike channels at Hesperian/Paseo Grande, and Hayward’s first protected intersection at Hesperian/W A Street (learn more about protected intersections here). While there are a lot more design features needed to make this corridor truly a Complete Street, we appreciate the work done as a step in the right direction and will continue advocating for more.
