10th Street between Webster Street and Oak Street is set to be repaved in late 2021. Recently, the CIty implemented a Slow Street on 10th Street between Harrison Street and Jackson Street with the goal of reducing vehicle traffic and allowing more space for outdoor recreation during the Covid-19 pandemic. This repaving project provides a key opportunity to build on the Slow Streets project, as well as provide more pedestrian space on 10th Street in the busy block between Webster Street and Harrison Street. To the East between Oak Street and 2nd Avenue, the City has grant funding to improve pedestrian crossings, bicycle connectivity, and sidewalks. This will create a safer corridor connecting Chinatown and Lincoln Square with OMCA, Laney College, Lake Merritt, and Eastlake.
