The project proposes safety improvements to two existing at-grade rail crossings on Virginia Street and Hearst Avenue in the City of Berkeley in Alameda County. The improvements are designed to increase safety for motorists and pedestrians. Currently the two crossings consist of two-lane roadways with parking on both sides, paved medians, sidewalks, and landscaping within the UPRR right-of-way. Single-arm gates are present in each direction of traffic. Safety improvements at both crossings include installation new security gates/fencing, medians, pavement markings, and roadside signals. Additional improvements include Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) detectable pavers, warning devices, “No Trespassing” signs, replacement of signal arms, and installation of new sidewalks.
