Construction on access, safety and placemaking improvements along the Ohlone Greenway in and around the area of the El Cerrito Plaza and del Norte BART stations is set to begin the first week of April and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2018, according to the City of El Cerrito.
Construction activities will typically start at 8 a.m. and finish by 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, likely leading to temporary traffic delays and parking restrictions on surrounding streets, as well as pedestrian and bicycle detours around the project site, the city said.
“The project will improve and widen the mixed-use path; upgrade and expand existing crosswalks on adjacent streets to create high visibility pedestrian zones with new striping, special pavement, improved signage, curb bulb-outs, upgraded curb ramps and flashing lights,” according to the city. “The project also includes placemaking elements such as native landscaping, seating lighting and other amenities to increase the sense of connectivity to the rest of the Greenway and establish a strong sense of place at these transportation gateways to the community.”
