Panoramic Hill Street Rehabilitation Project

The City of Berkeley has initiated a project to rehabilitate pavement, retaining walls, and storm drainage on the following streets, as shown on the map: Panoramic Way, Mosswood Road, Arden Road and Canyon Road; and portions of Dwight Way, Bancroft Way and Prospect Street. All work will be within the City of Berkeley limits and within the City’s right of way. The project is funded by the local Transportation dollars including Measures B & BB.

Panoramic Hill Area


The City of Berkeley has hired Harrison Engineering Inc. (HEI) to provide civil engineering design services for the project. In the coming weeks, HEI and their subconsultants will be onsite performing surveying, video inspection of the storm drain, marking existing utility locations, and performing cores and borings in the roadway for geotechnical investigation. Deeper borings will be done for slopes and retaining walls that will be evaluated near 161 Panoramic Way and Orchard Lane on Panoramic Way.

Field work will be performed during the month of April between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Complete roadway closures are not anticipated, but you will encounter one-lane traffic control with flaggers; short delays of less than 10 minutes can be expected while equipment is in the street. Please be on the lookout for workers and parking restrictions that will be posted on barricades 72 hours in advance of the work. Please drive and walk with caution in the area of the work. EBMUD’s ongoing waterline project may also have traffic control in place as they continue their work, possibly creating additional delays.


The community is invited to attend a public meeting for the Panoramic Hill Street Rehabilitation Project. The City of Berkeley and the engineering team will make a brief presentation about the project and answer questions about the project. The meeting will also provide an opportunity for the community to help the City identify any drainage issues or any other concerns within the project area that may be incorporated into the design. Even though the work will take place in the City of Berkeley, all affected residents are welcome, as anticipated construction impacts will also be discussed.
