The Telegraph Avenue streetscape improvement project from 2005 is getting additional consideration.
Not only would it reduce pollution & traffic, it would promote health by offering a safe alternative to driving. There is a bike lane and improved sidewalk access. In addition, business would benefit due to all the additional foot and bike traffic.
This video shows a May 2014 demo of the protected bike-lane.
And here’s a proposed graphic of the plan.
What can you do to move this proposal along?
- Patronize these businesses for supporting the protected bikeway
- Send a letter of support to the City of Oakland. Use this online submission form
- Volunteer at the Telegraph Walks Outreach team
- Contact Dave Campbell firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help Bike East Bay reach more businesses and neighborhood residents
