Richmond City Council: Carlson Crosstown Connection Bikeway Project

The Richmond Carlson Crosstown Connection bikeway project will build ADA-compliant curb ramps, intersection improvements at AC Transit bus stops, and bike lanes on Carlson Blvd from Broadway to Tehama Ave. There has been considerable opposition to the project, mainly because it includes vehicle lane reductions on part of the route.

City Council needs to hear that Richmond residents and bike riders do in fact want to see these traffic safety improvements, and do want the City to follow through with its Pedestrian Plan, Bicycle Master Plan, South Richmond Transportation Connectivity Plan, General Plan, and Climate Action Plan. The project is made possible by a $500,000 grant from the Safe Routes to Transit program. Council will vote whether or not to advertise the project and the funding will be lost if not approved.
