Oakland’s Swift and Effective Safety Improvements


Photo by Sergio Ruiz

Due to construction delays on the safety improvements around the Lake Merritt BART station, we've shifted the focus of this tour to highlight a similar project in Downtown Oakland.

Join staff from the Oakland Department of Transportation for a walking tour of a recent project in Downtown Oakland that uses new swift and effective safety improvements. Come see how the project came about, learn the details behind the design decisions and hear about the future projects coming to Oakland that will use similar treatments to achieve safety and accessibility goals. Generously sponsored by Kaiser Permanente.
