Our Project List for Measure J

Author: Bike East Bay

Date: October 28, 2013

The following list was submitted to the CCTA in January 2014 for their consideration in updating the Countywide Transportation Plan and in developing an expenditure plan for the reauthorization of Measure J. 

Our vision of a high-quality, connected bikeway network in Contra Costa County includes:

  • Completing the Regional Bikeway Network
  • East Bay Bike Share system
  • Bike stations at every BART station (10 Contra Costa stations)
  • Safe Routes to Schools

The Regional Bikeway Network is key to the success of all of these projects and itself is made up of many gap closure projects, such as:

West Contra Costa gap closures

  • Richmond Greenway overcrossing of train tracks at 23rd St
  • Point Richmond to Point Molate bridge connection
  • Bay Trail gap closures in Pt. Pinole to Carquinez Strait
  • El Cerrito Plaza BART to Bay Trail connection
  • Completion of Richmond Greenway to Richmond Parkway Trail
  • Complete Wildcat Creek Trail

Central Contra Costa gap closures

  • Olympic Blvd Corridor bike-ped connection
  • Martinez to Iron Horse Trail connection
  • Pleasant Hill-Concord connection over 680
  • Pleasant Hill short cut path from BART to Concord
  • Walnut Creek BART to downtown/Iron Horse Trail connection
  • North Concord BART to Willow Pass along SR 4
  • Monument Blvd complete street

LaMorInda gap closures

  • Fish Ranch Road to Orinda BART
  • St. Stevens Trail to Lafayette connection

East Contra Costa gap closures

  • Willow Pass to Delta de Anza Trail connection
  • Railroad Avenue Bikeway
  • Mokelumne Aquaduct Trail crossing of SR 4 at Lone Tree Way
  • Delta Trail: Antioch to Oakley
  • California Canal Trail gap closures

Southwest Contra Costa gap closures

  • Bike-ped bridge over Bollinger Canyon
  • Bike-ped bridge over Crow Canyon
  • Bike-ped bridge over Sycamore Rd

Operations/Maintenance of Regional Bikeway Network

  • Funding for pathway maintenance: $2 million/yr
  • Crossing upgrades at major arterials: 131 crossing upgrades on 6 major pathways
  • Trail use data collection

Contra Costa is joining many counties around the country to replace lost state and federal transportation funds with local sales tax funds in order to keep the system moving. EBBC will continue working with the CCTA to ensure an expenditure plan includes a fair share for bikes, a strategy that has already worked with Measure BB in Alameda County
