40th Street/MacArthur BART Bicycle Access Project
Goal: To improve east-west bicycle access between MacArthur BART, the Piedmont Ave neighborhood, Kaiser Hospital and Emeryville, and connect to the bicycle and pedestrian path across the new eastern span of the San Francisco Bay Bridge (which opened in September 2013).
Since 2009, the following projects have been constructed:
- 40th Street (Adeline Street to Martin Luther King Jr Way and Telegraph Avenue to Webster Street): An experimental bikeway featuring green pavement and shared roadway bicycle markings (sharrows) was installed in September 2013, as pictured. More details:
- Approved experiment request (January 2013)
- Project mailer (May 2013)
- Project overview flyer (October 2013)
- Analysis of Bike East Bay bicyclist survey (December 2014)
- Draft final report (December 2014)
- Final report (pending): The report will be finalized when crash data from the statewide system, not currently available, is incorporated. Crash data are expected to be available at the end of 2015, and the report completed in 2016.
- 41st Street (Webster Street to Piedmont Avenue): bikeway striping (sharrows and bike lanes) was installed in March 2012.
