Lake Merritt bikeway improvements—Concepts

At the December 03, 2020 Infrastructure Committee meeting, Charlie Ream gave a presentation on Lake Merritt Bikeway Improvements Project.

“The Lake Merritt Bikeway Improvements Project proposes several changes to the roadway on Lakeside Drive from Madison Street to Lake Merritt Boulevard and on Lake Merritt Boulevard from Lakeside to E 12th Street. This section of street is set to be repaved in 2021. This presents an opportunity to extend the popular two-way protected cycletrack around Lake Merritt from Madison Street southward and over the estuary bridge to E 12th Street!”

—from the City of Oakland survey on the Lake Merritt Bikeway Improvements Project
