Meeting to provide information, gather feedback on potential environmental impacts of East Bay Greenway project

November 9, 2017

HAYWARD, Calif., Nov. 9, 2017—The City of Hayward is hosting a public information meeting scheduled Nov. 16 on the East Bay Greenway project, an Alameda County Transportation Commission plan to develop a parkway and bike paths connecting Lake Merritt and South Hayward BART stations.

The meeting, sponsored by the county Transportation Commission, is set to take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nov. 16 in the City Council chambers at Hayward City Hall, 777 B Street.

The project calls for a 16-mile trail facility consisting of multi-use pathways and protected bike lanes running primarily along the BART railway alignment connecting Oakland, San Leandro, and the downtown Hayward and South Hayward stations.

The Transportation Commission estimates the entire project would cost between $290 and $490 million with funding as yet largely unidentified and anticipated to come from a combination of federal, state and regional sources.

Project information, including a report evaluating potential environmental effects of the East Bay Greenway project, are available here on the Alameda County Transportation Commission website.

If you are unable to attend the Hayward meeting and would like to submit written comments, the Transportation Commission says it is accepting them until Nov. 21 through a web form on the project website or by mail sent to:
