Lake Merritt BART Bikeways
The Lake Merritt BART Bikeways project will install high-quality bikeways serving Lake Merritt BART where currently none exist. The project includes bike lanes on the one-way streets that serve the station from the north, south, east, and west: Madison St from 19th St to 4th St; Oak St from Embarcadero to 14th St; 8th St from Fallon St to Harrison St; and 9th St from Harrison St to Fallon St. The project will also install bike lanes on 10th St from Madison St and Oak St that will connect to the bikeway pending construction on 10th St to the east of Oak St.
The project includes the resurfacing of key roadway segments with severe deterioration in order to provide a path of travel that is safe for and supportive of bicycling. All curb ramps in the paving area will be upgraded to current standard. Throughout the project area, travel lanes will be removed to create space for the bicycle lanes resulting in new striping on all streets and improved pedestrian safety at crossings. The project is expected to be completed in 2015.
