Berkeley Measure M Workshop: Repave Bikeways!

From East Bay Bicycle Coalition:

Public workshop May 2

We have a great opportunity to get Berkeley pothole-ridden bikeways repaved and in the process encourage more people to take up bike commuting. With Bike to Work Daycoming up May 9, now is the time to take advantage of the demand for better bike facilities in Berkeley. There are many bicycle boulevards in need of repaving, including Milvia St south of Blake, 9th St north of Allston, California in many spots, Heinz/Russell too. Please come to this informational workshop and show your support for prioritizing bikeways in how Berkeley spends its new repaving monies of Measure M.

If you can’t make this meeting, there will be two more workshops this Summer. We also encourage you to contact:


and let them know you want them to support repaving bikeways with Berkeley’s Measure M $$$. Thanks for your involvement.

The Berkeley Public Works Commission in cooperation with the Community Environmental Advisory Commission, the Transportation Commission and the League of Women Voters – Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville invite all community members to an information session on the implementation of Measure M.  The first of three community meetings will be on May 2, 5:30 to 8:00 pm at the North Berkeley Senior Center.  An invitation flyer is attached.

Please distribute the invitation flyer to as broad a list of Berkeley residents as possible.
