East Oakland Planning for Paving

East Oakland Planning for Paving is an effort to incorporate more traffic safety strategies and community input in the process of repaving Oakland’s street.

About

In 2014 the Oakland City Council adopted a Five-Year Pavement Prioritization Plan. Through this Plan, Council identified and prioritized approximately 49 miles of roadways to be repaved. Voter approval of Oakland’s Infrastructure Bond in 2016 created an opportunity to accelerate completion of the Plan. In East Oakland, streets that are slated for repaving in the next two years include:

  • High St. (from I-580 to International Blvd.)
  • Bancroft Ave. (from High St. to 107th Ave.)
  • Havenscourt Blvd. (from International Blvd. to Bancroft Ave.)
  • MacArthur Blvd. (from 73rd Ave. to 82nd Ave.)
  • 90th Ave. (from 78th Ave. to 104th Ave.)
  • Plymouth St. (from 78th Ave. to 104th Ave.)

East Oakland Planning for Paving is an effort to incorporate more traffic safety strategies in the process of repaving these streets by including more community input.

Community Engagement

We engaged residents and stakeholders on the opportunities of the paving program – high visibility crosswalks, painted safety areas, refreshed striping, separated bikeways, etc. We received valuable feedback on the potential design ideas and ways to increase accessibility, health and safety, affordability, and processes as Oakland’s streets get repaved.

From March to August 2018, we:

  • hosted three (3) workshops with support from Fehr & Peers and Streetwyze at Allendale Elementary, East Oakland Youth Development Center, and Youth Uprising
  • attended 13 NCPC meetings
  • tabled at community events (including National Night Out), youth centers and libraries
  • participated in three (3) block parties engaging residents on the potential designs for their streets
  • engaged over 500 residents and stakeholders and conducted 120 in-person surveys.

In addition to collecting data regarding potential changes to street design, we’ve applied the Inclusive Guidelines from the Department of Race & Equity to elevate the importance of such investments in East Oakland. OakDOT leveraged this project to listen to the needs and visions of the community, giving us the tools to develop projects that come from the community.
