GoPort is a program of projects to improve truck and rail access to the Port of Oakland, one of the nation’s most vital seaports. It consists of three components:
  • 7th Street Grade Separation West Segment (7SGSW): Realign and grade separate the intersection of 7th Street and Maritime Street and construct a rail spur underneath to improve the access and minimize conflicts between rail, vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists.
  • 7th Street Grade Separation East Segment (7SGSE): Replace existing railroad underpass between I-880 and Maritime Street to increase clearance for trucks and improve shared pedestrian/bicycle pathway.
  • Freight Intelligent Transportation Systems (FITS) and Technology Master Plan: Apply ITS, signal systems along W. Grand Avenue, Maritime Street, 7th Street and Middle Harbor Road, and other technologies to costeffectively manage truck arrivals and improve incident response.
