Welcome to the Transportation Division at the City of Berkeley, CA. We are part of the Department of Public Works.

The Transportation Division of the Public Works Department oversees citywide transportation planning, traffic engineering, parking, bicycle and pedestrian planning, and alternative transportation programs.  In partnership with neighborhood organizations, community groups, and local business associations, our office develops short and long range policy recommendations and directs program implementation to support a safe, efficient transportation environment in Berkeley.

Shattuck Reconfiguration and Pedestrian Safety Project - The Shattuck Reconfiguration and Pedestrian Safety Project will repair and reconfigure Shattuck Avenue from Allston Way three blocks north through the Shattuck/University intersection. The project converts the west (southbound) section of Shattuck into a four-lane, two-way street, eliminating the current circuitous movement for northbound traffic at the Shattuck/University intersection, while the east (northbound) section of Shattuck would be narrowed to two lanes with angled parking to off-set the loss of parking on the west leg of Shattuck.
