- 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.
- Congestion relief: Upgrade technology and infrastructure to minimize and manage truck wait times, manage truck congestion, and improve traffic circulation
- Efficiency: Improve Port and Rail Yard efficiencies, intermodal yard connectivity, and expand near-dock use of rail and intermodal facilities
- Sustainability: Reconstruct Bay Trail segment on 7th Street and Maritime Street and reduce emissions/carbon footprint
- Economic stimulation: Reduce shipping costs, improve Port competitiveness and create jobs

GoPort Program Project Location Map
Freight Intelligent Transportation System (FITS): Highlighted in yellow on the GoPort Project Map, this project’s limits are Maritime Street (between West Grand Avenue and Middle Harbor Road), 7th Street (between Wood Street and 7th Street western end), Middle Harbor Road (at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park and Adeline Street), Adeline Street (between 5th Street and Middle Harbor Road) and Embarcadero West (Jefferson Street to Embarcadero West western end). The FITS technology installation is the only component that includes installation of signals and other technology elements ion City of Oakland streets. 7th Street Grade Separation East (7SGSE): The project is located along 7th Street between Maritime Street and west of Interstate 880 (I-880). This project is highlighted in blue on the GoPort Project Map. 7th Street Grade Separation West (7SGSW): The project limits are the intersections of 7th Street and Middle Harbor Road, 7th and Maritime streets, and Maritime and West 14th streets. This project is to be constructed west of I-880. This project is highlighted in red on the map.
