Alameda CTC Announces $30 Million Federal Award to Improve Transportation Safety, Connectivity in Oakland and San Leandro Along East Bay Greenway

Earlier today the US Department of Transportation announced a $30 million grant to the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) to construct the first phase of the East Bay Greenway, providing a 10.6-mile bike and pedestrian corridor connecting communities along five BART stations from Oakland to San Leandro. Construction will deliver a host of new safety features for users along the path, including protected intersections, separated bike lanes, crosswalk and accessibility improvements, and traffic signal enhancements.

The award was made possible through the US Department of Transportation’s Reconnecting Communities Pilot and Neighborhood Access and Equity discretionary grant programs. Alameda CTC’s $30 million grant is the second largest in California.
