Berkeley’s Climate Action Transportation Working Group and Bike East Bay are reviving efforts to make the southside area of Berkeley a better place for pedestrians and bicyclists. Now you can help by sending email to the Transportation Commission, which discusses this opportunity Thursday, February 19, 7:00pm.
Converting Bancroft Way and Durant Ave to two-way traffic would make it possible to:
Add bike lanes or a two-way cycle track on Bancroft west of Dana
Widen the sidewalk on the south side of Bancroft east of Dana. For more about this sidewalk widening, see http://www.berkeleyside.com/2013/01/03/op-ed-wider-sidewalks-would-revitalize-southside/
