Attend online open house on Nov. 10, complete survey by Nov. 28

Berkeley, California (Tuesday, November 09, 2021) - Use our online survey to give input on how we can change four streets on the south side of campus to incorporate the needs of bicyclists, pedestrians, bus riders and local businesses.

For the sections of Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, Fulton Street, and Dana Street closest to campus, we ask how you travel to and from those areas, and we ask for your input on designs.

Each road is different. For example, options being considered for Bancroft include a protected bike lane, a dedicated bus lane, and a parking lane.

Everyone should be safe on Berkeley's roads, no matter how you travel.

Take the online survey before November 28

Share your input on possible designs:

Southside Streets Survey
Closes Sunday, November 28, 2021, at 5:00 PM
All responses are anonymous

Please share widely among any who live, work or are otherwise part of our community. The more people that fill out the survey, the broader the set of experiences we'll capture.

Join us for our first online Open House to give your input on the street designs.

You can also learn more about the project at our online open house:

Goals and changes for Southside streets

Moving through Berkeley's Southside neighborhood can be a challenge. There are now more businesses and residents, and the area's close proximity to campus means that many walk, bike or use transit to move around. At the same time, there is increased freight and small package delivery.

A "Complete Street" is a safe street for all ages and abilities and will:

These efforts build on Berkeley's longstanding commitment to being responsive to the needs of the community and support the City's Strategic Plan goals to "provide state-of-the-art, well-maintained infrastructure, amenities, and facilities," and "create a resilient, safe, connected, and prepared City."

No matter how you move, we want you to be safe.
