Caldecott Tunnel Bike/Ped Mitigation Projects Open House

From EBBC.org:

Come to the March 26, 2012 open house to view the final designs for several key bikeway projects that the City of Oakland will soon complete as part of the Caldecott Tunnel 4th Bore Project. We are pleased to report that new bike lanes are coming to Tunnel Road, Caldecott Lane and Broadway, as well as many pedestrian improvements.

EBBC volunteer Matt Ayers will be in attendance, along with many members of the Fourth Bore Coalition, who we fought long and hard with over several years to secure bike/ped/neighborhood improvements to lessen the effect from increased traffic caused by the widening of State Route 24 through the tunnel. In total, Oakland is funding $8 million of these projects, and the City of Berkeley is funding $2 million.
