Oakland Innovates with Green Bikeway
Improving Bike Access to MacArthur BART & the Bay Bridge
The City of Oakland is innovating with an experimental design on 40th Street: green color in the travel lane to help bicyclists and motorists share the road. The project seeks to improve access for bicyclists between MacArthur BART, Piedmont Avenue commercial district, Emeryville, and the new bicycle/pedestrian path from 40th Street/Shellmound Road to the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge. The experiment features shared roadway bicycle markings (sharrows) highlighted by green color located in the travel lane. While green color is now approved for standard use in dedicated bike lanes, the 40th Street project is innovative for using green color in a lane shared by both motorists and bicyclists. Such experiments require approval by State and Federal regulators. Oakland Public Works is conducting the experiment with the Federal Highway Administration and California Traffic Control Devices Committee. Read the press release for more information about this special project.

Recycling every day, at home, at work and at play, is an easy and rewarding practice. By adopting recycling and waste reduction habits, you can reduce pollution and fight climate change. Help Oakland recycle more by making a habit of recycling paper, cardboard, cans and bottles and batteries, and by eliminating wasteful habits. The Recycling Program oversees garbage and recycling services provided by Waste Management of Alameda County and California Waste Solutions and works to ensure that recycling is widely available.

It Starts in the Heart!
The beautification of the City of Oakland is dependent on many groups working together. Oakland's Public Works Agency, in partnership with our community, provides an opportunity for individuals, neighborhood groups, civic organizations, employee groups and local businesses to play an active and ongoing role in cleaning, greening and maintaining our neighborhoods, parks and creeks.
