Victory! Funding Approved for 27 New Bikeways

Both the Alameda County Transportation Commission and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority have approved funding for 27 new bikeway projects, including most of the bike projects you voted as your favorites in our online polls recently. These new bikeways will provide much-improved bike connections to BART Stations and fill in gaps in the regional bikeway network, helping make more communities bike-friendly. They will also get built in the next few years for you to start enjoying.

We are particularly happy to report that innovative, well-designed bikeways are coming to 1) Hearst Avenue in Berkeley 2) four key streets around Lake Merritt BART Station, 3) Christie Ave Two-Way Cycle Track in Emeryville, 4) protected bike lanes to Concord BART, as well as bike improvements around Fremont BART and Union City BART.

    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;
