Global Opportunities at the Port of Oakland (GoPort)

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 four 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.

Program Benefits

  • 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
