I-980 Redevelopment Project

At the August 19, 2021 BPAC meeting, Warren Logan, Policy Director of Mobility and Interagency Relations, gave a presentation on the potential redevelopment project to remove/cap Interstate-980. The Mayor’s Office has completed a partnership study with the Urban Leaders Fellowship program to develop an equitable engagement strategy. The Mayor’s Office and the Oakland DOT plan to meet with Caltrans District 4 project managers to identify ways to align with the State DOT’s ‘Vision 980’ project which will develop right of way concepts and alternatives for Interstate-980. Lastly, Warren shared details about the Mayor’s Office’s State and Federal advocacy for programming grant funds for the I-980 redevelopment and affordable housing.
