Document Description
The project area is located within the City of El Cerrito, proximate to City of Albany and City of Richmond city limits. The site is adjacent to a mixed-use neighborhood surrounded by residential uses to the north, the Albany Hill Park to the south, residential and institutional uses to the east and residential and commercial uses to the west. The site is about 0.2 miles east of I-80. The project involves the installation of a lighting system along three blocks of an existing paved pedestrian pathway along Cerrito Creek in order to improve the attractiveness of the path as well as increase public safety (and perceived safety) of the project site as well as Creekside Park. The lighting system would be installed on the embankment of the creek (within 3 ft of the paved path) and would involve excavating holes and mounting light posts, pouring concrete, and trenching for and installaing the underground electrical conduit. Approximately 8 light poles would be installed.
