Our Workshop Presentation #3 has been uploaded to the website! Staff will be taking your comments on materials from this presentation until December 1st, 2021. In addition to email, phone, or mail comment, we encourage folks to utilize our Social Pinpoint comment tool, which provides an overall proposed visual layout of the various near-term and long-term options, a survey on placemaking items, as well as a comment tool that can be dropped as a “pin” on site specific locations. Click on a feature on the Social Pinpoint map to learn more about a specific item or location. We will still be taking traditional email/mail comment, but if anyone has any questions, please reach out to the staff contacts listed below. We very much look forward to receiving your feedback!

Project Study Overview   

The Hopkins Corridor Traffic and Placemaking Study is a “conceptual design” study, with the primary focus centered around community outreach. Through this study, the City of Berkeley will be collecting placemaking and street design ideas directly from the North Berkeley residents, businesses, employees, and other key stakeholders who frequent this unique and joyful corner of Berkeley. This study is specifically catered to take a holistic approach to “Complete Streets” design, by garnering public feedback through multiple online workshops and working closely with residents and visitors in order to better understand their specific needs, the end result being the delivery of a final conceptual design and preferred set of options for traffic and placemaking improvements along the Hopkins Corridor.

Project Study Vision 

Hopkins Street is safe and accessible for all modes of transportation and has a historic character that provides lovely, joyful public spaces for residents, businesses, and visitors.     

Project Study Goals

  • Improve the safety of walking along and crossing Hopkins Street, achieving zero pedestrian severe injuries by 2028.
  • Improve bicycle and vehicular transportation safety and flow along and crossing Hopkins Street, achieving zero severe injuries by 2028.
