Vote the Streets You Want a Bike Lane on for Your Commute

What if decision makers in Contra Costa County listened to you before deciding what bike projects to fund? What are your top 5 projects? Cast your vote here!

Over the next four years, over $45 million will be programmed for new transportation projects in Contra Costa County, $24 million for bike/ped/transit projects and $21 million for repaving local streets and roads. While all of the projects funded with this money are required to accommodate bicyclists, this accommodation requirement is only a ‘policy’ and won’t translate into new bikeways unless you help us make it a reality where you ride. In response to the “Call for Projects,” the CCTA received 22 “competitive” OBAG funding requests totaling $57.8 million for an available funding amount of $24.3 million.

Take a look at the map below showing the transportation projects currently applying for funding in Contra Costa County. Click on a project in your city to find out a bit about the project, where it is located, what type of bike improvements are included, if any at all.

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.

Contra Costa ready to award $20 million for key bikeways

Contra Costa ready to award $20 million for key bikeways

Get ready for new bikeway projects in just about every city in Contra Costa County. The bicycle and pedestrian program of Contra Costa’s transportation sales tax measure is awarding its first round of funding to many great bikeway projects that will close key gaps in our regional bikeway network:

  • Richmond: Nevin Avenue is being improved with a new BART station entrance area on the east side of the station, as well as streetscape improvements for bikes on the west side toward downtown;
  • El Cerrito: full funding is now in place to complete the connection between the Ohlone Greenway in El Cerrito with the Richmond Greenway, across San Pablo Avenue. Once completed, these two combined pathways will form the 2nd longest urban pathway in the East Bay, right after the Iron Horse Trail;
  • Hercules: the East Bay Regional Parks District is moving forward with completing the Bay Trail past the Bio Rad facility, to close the gap between Rodeo and the proposed Hercules Transit Station;
