Approved Capital Improvements Projects for fiscal year 2015-2016
  • 2015 Pavement Rehabilitation Project - Current annual paving project which includes replacing damaged curb, gutter, and sidewalks, upgrading curb ramps, installing bicycle facilities, and asphalt base repair and rehabilitation.
  • 2015 Slurry Seal Project - A preventive maintenance project in which a protective slurry is applied, extending the life of the pavement in good condition for about five to seven years. Project completed in 2015.
  • 37th Street Improvements - This project includes pedestrian and bicycle-oriented safety improvements along 37th Street between Center Street and Cerrito Avenue, including bicycle lanes, upgraded curb ramps, and pedestrian count down signals at the intersections with Macdonald and Barrett Avenues.

Upgrade or install reported curb ramp deficiencies, repair reported sidewalk, curb, and gutter damaged by City owned trees, install missing sidewalks to eliminate pedestrian access barriers.
  • Bay Trail: Goodrick Avenue Gap Closure - This project includes design and construction of a segment of San Francisco Bay Trail along Goodrick Avenue and will connect the existing multi-use path along the Richmond Parkway with a new segment of bay trail in Point Pinole Regional Shoreline Park. Construction phase is currently unfunded.
  • Bay Trail: Point Richmond to Point Molate - Complete a Project Study Report to determine a feasible alternative that will provide safer bicycle/pedestrian access on the San Francisco Bay Trail from Point Richmond to Point Molate without the use of the I-580 shoulder.

  • Carlson Boulevard Crosstown Connection - Funded by a grant from the Safe Routes to Transit program, this project will install bike lanes, build curb ramps, upgrade pedestrian crosswalks, and improve pedestrian and bicycle access to bus stops and BART stations. 
  • Crosswalk Improvements Program - Enhance existing crosswalks with improved markings and signage to increase pedestrian safety, particularly at night and during rain.
  • Cutting/Carlson Traffic Signal Safety Improvements - Analyze traffic concerns, repair traffic loops, upgrade traffic signal equipment, and install new traffic safety devices, including the installation of an additional traffic signal pole, concrete median extension, roadway striping, and construction of a new sidewalk.
  • Gap Closures in Sidewalks & Surface Drainage Improvements - Includes responding to reports of missing sidewalk, researching the conditions that led to the missing sidewalk, and designing and constructing sidewalks in locations where the improvement is necessary to eliminate a barrier to pedestrian access.  Also includes designing and constructing surface drainage improvements, such as repairing damaged curb and gutter that causes ponding, reducing isolated flooding areas, and stopping groundwater seepage. It is not City policy to install missing curbs unless the current configuration causes drainage and/or erosion problems. Projects underway on Stege Avenue and at Ohio Avenue & 41st Street.
  • Harbour Way Improvements - Partially funded by a Transportation Development Act grant, this project proposes a variety of pedestrian and bicycle improvements along Harbour Way from its southerly terminus at the proposed Richmond Ferry Terminal north to Pennsylvania Avenue.
  • I-80 Central Avenue Interchange Improvements Phase I - This project is the first in a two phase effort to improve traffic congestion in the I-580/I-80/Central Avenue area. Phase I includes signalization of intersections currently configured as all-way stops and the installation of variable message signs (VMS). The VMS will be configured to prohibit left turns onto westbound I-80 from Central Ave during weekend peak periods. Project is wholly funded by grants.
  • Mathieu Court Alley Greening Project - The first "green alley" project in Richmond will replace impervious paving with native plant landscaping, raingardens, and pervious pavers. Will mimic natural systems that clean and filter stormwater, and create a new community green space with tree canopy, community garden opportunities, and informal seating areas. Project Under Construction
  • MLK Center Improvements - Renovation of the Community Center and Park includes the demolition of the existing Community Center buildings and the design and construction of new buildings, playing fields, and activity areas.
  • Nevin Avenue Pedestrian Improvement Project - streetscape and "bicycle boulevard" connecting BART station to Civic Center, including new landscaping, lighting, wayfinding signage, traffic calming measures, pedestrian improvements. Project Under Construction
  • Quiet Zones Railroad Crossing Improvements - Analyze noise and safety concerns and construct the appropriate improvements at railroad crossings so these locations can move towards qualifying as quiet zones.
  • Richmond Greenway/Ohlone Gap Closure Project - Construction of a multi-use trail connecting the Richmond Greenway to the Ohlone Greenway. Will also restore and realign Baxter Creek and provide a signalized, pedestrian-actuated crossing of San Pablo Ave. Partially funded by Safe Routes to Transit and Prop 84 Urban Greening grants. Project presentation slides

  • San Pablo Avenue Complete Streets - In partnership with the City of San Pablo and partially funded by a One Bay Area Grant, this project will construct sidewalks, bicycle lanes, lighting improvements, and signal modifications along San Pablo Avenue between Rivers Avenue (San Pablo) and Hilltop Drive (Richmond). Final Study Report
  • Street LED Replacement Project - Existing high pressure sodium vapor lights will be replaced with LED street light fixtures on Cutting, San Pablo, Macdonald, and Richmond Parkway. 
  • Traffic Safety Improvements Program - Intended to complete various minor traffic safety improvements based on the Traffic Safety Study conducted in fiscal year 2009/2010 including safety upgrades for traffic signal equipment, and installing new traffic safety devices to enhance safety for pedestrians and motorists. Major traffic safety improvements will be developed as separate CIP projects.
