East Bay Greenway (EBGW) Multimodal Project: Lake Merritt to Bayfair
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The EBGW Project proposes to construct an active transportation facility that would connect BART stations, downtown areas, schools, and other major destinations along arterials over a distance of approximately 11 miles and would traverse the cities of Oakland and San Leandro. The project consists of Class I Multi-Use Path, Class II Bike Lanes, traffic calmed Class III neighborhood bike routes (bicycle boulevards) on low volume, traffic-calmed roadways, and one- and two-way Class IV Separated Bikeway facilities. The project would also include intersection crossing and traffic control improvements, pedestrian ADA improvements, and access to intermediate BART stations along the project corridor. The project does not require any new right of way acquisition. The purpose of the project is to: • Improve multimodal connectivity and access to BART and other transit routes, schools, downtown areas, and major activity centers within the project limits • Enhance existing arterial streets within the project corridor so that they are accessible and comfortable to bicyclists and pedestrians • Improve safety for bicyclists and pedestrians by providing paths of travel that are physically separated from vehicular traffic or utilize low speed, low volume roadways, and which minimize conflicts between transportation modes to the extent feasible • Encourage mode shift by providing attractive, comfortable, and lower-stress non-vehicular paths of travel that facilitate first-mile, last-mile options to access community destinations

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Common Sense Exemption (Sec.15061(b)(3))
Reasons for Exemption
The project consists of the minor alteration of existing public facilities (roadways), involving negligible expansion of use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination. The proposed project would be located within existing transportation facilities with no proposed right-of-way acquisition. Overall, the scope of proposed work (multimodal improvements) would have a positive impact on the existing social and natural environment. No reasonable possibility of significant impacts was identified.
