Not to be outdone by its larger cities to the north and south, on May 22, Emeryville showed off a new 40th Street redesign, with bus-only lanes and a two-way cycle track, from Adeline Street west to the IKEA entrance and the path to the Bay Bridge. The cycle track design on 40th Street is being integrated into designs for protected bike lanes on San Pablo Avenue in Emeryville.
Emeryville City Council sent a strong directive to staff to come up with a design that moves the most people and improves mobility for everyone. The result is an impressive complete street project that should compete well for Measure BB funding in the next year. AC Transit is not only fully supportive of the new designs but also is delighted to finally be feeling some love from a local city. We love AC Transit too.
