The City of Pittsburg has released the draft bicycle and pedestrian network for the Pittsburg Moves plan and needs your feedback on project proposals. What’s on the menu? Protected bikeways on major arterials including Railroad Avenue, improved access to BART, and safer crossings for schools. If you live, work, or just ride in Pittsburg, the plan team needs your feedback on projects and priorities.
As part of the Pittsburg Moves outreach team, Bike East Bay will be on the ground to hear from the community this summer. On June 6, we’ll be out with Pittsburg city staff and consultants to test out crosswalk and bikeway improvements in a living preview of proposed projects at Railroad Avenue at California Avenue. This tricky intersection has been a connectivity and pedestrian safety issue, especially since the opening of the Pittsburg Center BART station. Walk or roll through before 11:00 am to see a temporary installation of crossing improvements and give your feedback for how the design can make the street safer and more comfortable.
When: June 6
Where: Railroad Avenue at California Avenue
