Ohlone Greenway BART AREA Access, Safety and Placemaking Improvements Project, C3076

The City of El Cerrito is poised to begin construction of access, safety and placemaking improvements along the Ohlone Greenway in and around the area of the El Cerrito Plaza and del Norte BART stations. The project will improve and widen the mixed-use path; upgrade and expand existing crosswalks on adjacent streets to create high visibility pedestrian zones with new striping, special pavement, improved signage, curb bulb-outs, upgraded curb ramps and flashing lights. The project also includes placemaking elements such as native landscaping, seating lighting and other amenities to increase the sense of connectivity to the rest of the greenway and establish a strong sense of place at these transportation gateways to the community.

Construction will begin the first week of April 2018, and be completed in the fall of 2018. Construction activities will typically start at 8 a.m. and finish by 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (no weekend work is planned).

Please anticipate temporary traffic delays and temporary parking restrictions on surrounding streets, as well as pedestrian and bicycle detours around the project site. Your patience during this major construction project is greatly appreciated.

For assistance with any construction-related issues, please contact Vanguard Construction or the City’s Resident Engineer. For general questions or background about the project, please contact the City's Consultant Project Manager or Public Works Department.
