Two project proposals we’ve written about in recent days — a plan to light up the Richmond Greenway and a request to install dozens of stop signs to calm traffic near neighborhoods — unanimously passed City Council Tuesday.

The council approved a construction contract to rehabilitate the lighting system for the Richmond Greenway pedestrian and cyclist pathway from San Pablo Avenue to 2nd Street. The $240,000 cost for the project has been set aside for this fiscal year in the Public Works budget. Read more about the project here.

A separate approved plan involves installing stop signs to calm traffic near Richmond neighborhoods and schools. Nearly 30 intersections will become four-way stops as a result. See which intersections will receive new stop signs in our initial story.
