Shoreline Drive Bikeway Community Workshop #3

October 18, 2012 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Alameda will unveil designs for a proposed new separated and protected bikeway on Shoreline Drive, perhaps like the bikeway at Lincoln Middle School on Fernside Dr. At two previous community meetings, residents expressed strong support for making dedicated space on the road for safe bike travel, and city staff promised to return with a cycle track design that met these concerns.

http://goo.gl/maps/0WV5 At this corner, heading SE at the intersection on Otis there is a left turn lane onto Fernside. The left turn signal is not triggered by bicycles and will not become green without a trigger. There is minimal visibility both of and from oncoming cars crossing the bridge from Bay Farm Island, making crossing against the light particularly dangerous.

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

Eleven East Bay Schools Ready to Build $5.7 Million in Safe Routes to School Projects

We are happy to report that the California Department of Transportation has awarded 11 Safe Routes to School grants to schools in the East Bay. Is your kid’s school on the list below? A total of $5.7 million in funds have been awarded in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. These projects include new bikeways on Farm Bureau Rd in Concord, Canal Rd in Pittsburg and Blacow Rd in Fremont. Alameda County schools in particular did well to receive so many grants, which is a testimony to the great work of Transform, Cycles of Change, and our supportive local cities and their staff to get more kids walking and bicycling to school. Good habits start early! On Bike to School Day this past May, bicycling rates to many schools tripled, and the numbers are only growing. It’s is great to see cities working hard to keep up with this surging demand. It is also encouraging to know that thanks to our successful advocacy work, the regional Safe Routes to School Program is intact and fully funded for the next 4 years. We are also working to ensure that the State does not take any of these monies in the future for other roadway projects. Your help may be needed for this. Stay tuned.
