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;

W Ohio & Richmond Parkway
94801 Richmond


Westbound on Ohio, crossing Richmond Parkway, the light is not activated by a bicycle. If a car happens to be there and activates the light, it does not stay green long enough for a biker to cross. In general, I have to press the pedestrian crossing button (which is only located on the south wide of Ohio), and that process still takes a long time. It is very inconvenient to cross this busy road.,+richmond&daddr=100+Chevron+Way,+Richmond,+CA+94801&hl=en&geocode=FXfHQgId2dC0-CmNMjUHsIKFgDHzYykiEwzzhw%3BFbbFQgId0oO0-Cl7geitzYKFgDFxcGGG4BbtsQ&gl=us&mra=ls&sll=37.930866,-122.377642&sspn=0.002243,0.004823&ie=UTF8&ll=37.930828,-122.377524&spn=0.008056,0.038581&z=15&layer=c&cbll=37.930863,-122.377534&panoid=XJKZ2NX_KHbz1lGu2IeIQQ&cbp=11,270.5,,0,1.3
