Berkeley, California (Monday, December 02, 2019) - Come to a December 7th open house to give input on ways we'd like to make streets safer for pedestrians and give input on our specific recommendations for ten priority streets.

Citywide, we're looking to increase drivers' awareness of pedestrians, who we are trying to make more visible. Our strategies include high visibility crosswalks, improved street lighting and protected left turns - reducing times when drivers might turn left as a pedestrian crosses.

We're also proposing specific changes on ten streets, which were prioritized based on their impact on safety, equity and an area's demand for walking - especially proximity to transit:

  • San Pablo Avenue, from University to Dwight
  • MLK Jr Way, from Hearst to Haste
  • Ashby Avenue, from San Pablo to Shattuck
  • Adeline Street, from Ashby to the southern border
  • University Avenue, from San Pablo to Oxford
  • Shattuck Avenue, from Adeline to the southern border
  • MLK Jr Way, from Haste to Adeline
  • Alcatraz Avenue, from Sacramento to Adeline
  • Cedar Street, from Sixth to Stannage
  • Sacramento Street, from Dwight to the southern border

Come look at our maps, materials and what we're proposing and then let us know if there's anything we've missed or what ideas you might have.

Pedestrian Plan Open House
Saturday, December 7, 2019
Ed Roberts Campus
3075 Adeline Street
(Near Ashby BART and ADA-accessible)

Following the open house, materials will also be posted online at walkberkeley.info for you to view and provide feedback.

This process, which will result in an update to our Pedestrian Plan, will prioritize projects for future funding. Your input will be incorporated when we write the Draft Plan in Spring 2020.
