Community Meeting to Review Caldecott Tunnel Settlement Projects November 8 (Oakland settlement)

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Councilmember Jane Brunner is hosting a community meeting Monday, November 8 at 7 p.m. at Kaiser Elementary School, 25 South Hill Court (Hiller High-lands) to review and discuss projects proposed for the City of Oakland Caldecott Settlement Agreement. Please attend! This might be your only public opportunity to make your voice heard on these crucial projects.

In November 2008, the City of Oakland concluded a settlement agreement with Caltrans that included $8 million of “enhancement” projects located in the North Oakland Hills, Rockridge, and Temescal. A complete list can be found at www.rockridge.org.The intent was to ameliorate the operational impacts of adding a fourth bore to the Caldecott Tunnel. Two major proposed projects in Rockridge are improved pedestrian crossings at the Broadway/Keith extended intersection and at the Broadway/Lawton intersection, with additional projects identified during June’s Walking Tours.

When finalized, fact sheets will be posted here prior to the meeting. Carpools to Kaiser will depart from the Rockridge BART station starting at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact info@rockridge.org.
