  • El Cerrito Plaza BART Station new fare gates at outside elevator: $750,000
  • Richmond Ferry to Bridge Bicycle Network Improvements on Harbor Way: $241,000
  • El Cerrito Del Norte BART TOD Complete Streets, including safety improvements at the Cutting Blvd/San Pablo Avenue: $1,189,800

  • East Bay Regional Park District Bay Trail planning-Point Pinole to Wilson Point: $500,000

Bike East Bay has been working on the Harbor Way cycle track with the city of Richmond. This funding should complete the funding package for the project, which will build protected bike lanes from the Richmond Ferry north to Hoffman Boulevard. From there, Richmond’s quick-build cycle track project, which Bike East Bay has advocated for, is under final design and will build a cycle track on Hoffman Blvd. and Cutting Blvd. into Point Richmond. 

The El Cerrito Del Norte BART project will build buffered, curbside bike lanes and green paint on Cutting Blvd. from the El Cerrito Del Norte BART Station to the west, under I-80, where bike lanes exist west of the railroad tracks, as well as spot bike lane improvements on San Pablo Avenue. This will be a continuation of many bike lane improvements on San Pablo Avenue in Contra Costa County.
