$24.4M in Federal Funding Awarded for 22 East Bay Traffic Safety Projects

$24.4 Million in federal funding has been awarded to 22 East Bay traffic safety projects, including protected bikeway upgrades in Richmond and Concord, trail crossing upgrades in Antioch, and more.


This funding is from a competitive grant program called the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP), which is focused on addressing safety issues at high-crash locations. These awards will be combined with a smaller amount of local money to fully fund the projects and bring them to construction within the next several years.

Wildcat Creek Trail Workshop - Richmond

May 31, 2019 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

The Wildcat Creek Trail is a natural asset in the heart of North Richmond. The creek runs through a residential area and is directly in front of the only public school in the neighborhood, Verde Elementary. This trail is missing amenities and beautification that most trails have. Wildcat Creek has a long history of community involvement with designing and implementing projects to prevent flooding in the neighborhood.

The Alexander Zuckermann Bicycle & Pedestrian Path is open to Yerba Buena Island and over to Treasure Island. This milestone achievement for bike advocacy was achieved with support from thousands. However, our work is only half done. Regional Measure 3 has funds for Bay Trail projects and could fund final design costs for the West Span Path.
