West Grand Avenue will get upgrades in 2021 and 2022 for easier, safer biking and walking connections  between downtown and the east span of the Bay Bridge/Bay Trail.

West Grand Avenue is getting a makeover with a two-way path for walking and biking, connecting to the Bay Trail and east span of the Bay Bridge. People will be able to ride or or take widened sidewalks on the south side of West Grand Avenue to connect to Maritime Ave.

Further slated improvements on West Grand Ave. between West Oakland and Downtown include buffered bike lanes and reducing the travel lanes to two in each direction. All crosswalks will be upgraded to “high visibility” style markings which have been shown to improve driver yielding.
