A plan is underway to construct safe routes for bicycle and pedestrians connecting the Richmond Ferry, the Richmond Greenway and the planned Richmond-San Rafael multi-use path.
The Trails for Richmond Action Committee announced today that the city of Richmond has begun to develop the Ferry to Bridge to Greenway Complete Streets Plan.
A project website has launched that provides project updates and meetings, a project map and a targeted timeline for the so-called Ferry to Bridge to Greenway Complete Streets Plan.
“Improved facilities will connect to the San Francisco Bay Trail leading into Berkeley to the south, as well as north to North Richmond and beyond,” according to the website. “Improvements will also connect to the Richmond Greenway, which leads through the heart of Richmond and connects two BART stations.”
A project analysis is expected to occur in April, with various considered concepts narrowed down to a final plan aimed for adoption in June 2020.
As part of the plan, ample community input is being sought. Project officials are already encouraging locals to participate in a survey.
