Hillegass/Ashby Bicycle Boulevard Crossing Walkthrough in Berkeley

From EBBC:

As part of the City’s diligent work to implement the publicly approved list of bike/ped projects that are mitigation for the Caldecott Tunnel 4th Bore Project, plans are underway to design a safe crossing of Ashby Ave at the Hillegass Bicycle Boulevard and at College Ave. If you can help, we need your support and attendance at this key public meeting:

If you can attend this walk thru, great! You’ll have a good time with neighbors and people who ride as you walk around and look at this project and one or two other projects nearby. It’s a hands-on opportunity to explain to the consultants and staff why a safe bike crossing here is so important to your commute.

If you cannot attend this walk thru, please Send an email of support to Eric Anderson, the City’s Bicycle & Pedestrian Planner, and let him know that Berkeley has your support for a safe bike crossing at Hillegass & Ashby. Thanks for your help.

Background info for you on our advocacy work around the Caldecott 4th Bore Project.
