Oakland 73rd Ave Bikeway

Oakland is planning safety upgrades on 73rd Ave, and wants public input to help inform an upcoming grant application.

Three options are offered including a standard bike lane with a painted buffer, a median pathway, or a new type of facility they’re calling the “frontage road” alternative.

The frontage road uses a concrete curb to separate the rightmost lane from the rest of the roadway, with speed humps in that lane and protected intersections at the major crossings.

This is sort of like a combination between a bike boulevard and a protected bikeway, and follows an example installed on 11th St in San Jose. Of the three options this one is our favorite and we encourage you to support it.

San Pablo Dam Rd Bike Lanes, El Sobrante

The Contra Costa County Public Works Department is soliciting feedback on the installation of a road diet along San Pablo Dam Road in El Sobrante. This would convert the four-lane road to a three-lane road with a center lane. The road diet will also provide additional width for bicycle lanes in both directions.

If this project receives sufficient community support and is supported by the Board of Supervisors, the County will then pursue grant funding opportunities to construct the road diet in the near future.
