Lake Merritt Channel Projects & Information
The Lake Merritt Channel is a narrow waterway that connects Lake Merritt with the Estuary and San Francisco Bay.
Measure DD projects along the Channel are intended to improve water flow, provide small boat passage, enhance bicycle and pedestrian access, restore wetlands, and make other Channel and shoreline improvements.
Major work includes replacement of the restrictive culverts at 10th Street with a clear-spanning bridge, and construction of a gated by-pass channel around the 7th Street Flood Control Station.
