Document Description
The West Oakland Link (proposed project or Link) proposes construction of a new bicycle/pedestrian path connection between West Oakland and the bike path leading to the East Span of the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge (Bay Bridge) in Oakland, California. The Link would provide safe access to the newly constructed bicycle/pedestrian path connecting to and on the Bay Bridge (Bay Bridge Trail), as well as access to existing and planned segments of the regional San Francisco Bay Trail and a connection between West Oakland and the Port via the Class I trail along the east side of Maritime Street. On the west end, the Link would connect to the Bay Bridge Trail near the Caltrans maintenance facility on the south side of the Bay Bridge toll plaza. On the east end, the Link would connect to the existing bicycle/pedestrian path on Mandela Parkway in West Oakland. The Class I portion of the Link would extend 6,030 feet (1.14 miles) between Mandela Parkway on the east and the Bay Bridge Trail on the west. The Link is an elevated structure for most of this distance to provide access across existing freeways, railways and industrial areas. In addition, at the east end, there would be 8,170 feet of Class II bike lanes on surface streets. There may also be a 100-space parking lot on Wood Street. There could be stormwater treatment areas on undeveloped land west of Wood Street and landscaping in the Mandela Parkway median and along the Class I segment of the Link.
