Below is a list of the Capital Improvement Projects for the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
- 2010/2011 Pavement Rehabilitation Project - Current annual paving project which includes replacing damaged curb, gutter, and sidewalks, upgrading curb ramps, and asphalt base repair and rehabilitation. Streets receive a different resurfacing treatment based on condition and are selected through the recommendations of the Pavement Management Program.
- ADA Curb Ramp & Right-of-Way Upgrades - An annual program dedicated to complying with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) within the street right-of-way. 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 from Kaiser Shipyard #3 to Ferry Point - Design and construction of a class I multi-use bicycle trail at bay shore from Shipyard #3 to Seacliff Drive, and adjacent to Brickyard Cove Road from Mallard Drive to Dornan Drive.
- Bay Trail Gap Closure (Cutting to Ferry Pt. Tunnel) - Pedestrian and bicycle improvements along Garrard Blvd between Cutting Blvd and the Ferry Point Tunnel.
- Bay Trail (Pt. Richmond to Pt. 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 Improvements (Tehama to City Limits) - Includes pavement reconstruction with replacement of damaged concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk. Drainage inlet modifications, landscaped median, and ADA curb ramps will also be constructed. The roadway striping will be replaced to include a bike lane in both directions.
- 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.
- Dornan Drive Tunnel Repair & Rehabilitation - Renovation of historic structure; work involves cleaning, repairing, and application of a seal to the existing concrete liner. Project will also improve drainage around the tunnel, provide energy efficient lighting, and a mural will be painted on the southern entrance.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 Design - Perform a feasibility study and design and seek construction grants for directly connecting the Richmond Greenway with the Ohlone Greenway in concert with restoration of Baxter Creek.
- Safe Routes to School, Cycle 1 - Construct safety enhancing infrastructure improvement to sidewalks, crosswalks, and streets in the vicinity of Ford, Grant, King, and Lincoln elementary schools. Improvements include upgrading deteriorated crosswalk markings and pavement legends and installing curb ramps, pedestrian refuge medians, and in-road lighted crosswalks.
- Safe Routes to School, Cycle 2 - Construct safety enhancing infrastructure improvement to sidewalks, crosswalks, and streets in the vicinity of Nystrom, Coronado, Highland, Washington, and Wilson elementary schools. Improvements include upgrading deteriorated crosswalk markings and pavement legends and installing curb ramps, pedestrian refuge medians, and in-road lighted crosswalks.

- Street Light Circuit Replacement Project - Removal of existing lights and installation of new lights in the May Valley and Park View neighborhoods. Outdated series wiring that caused whole blocks to go out at once will be replaced with new circuit design and LED street light fixtures.
- 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.
- Traffic Safety Study Improvements FY 2010/2011 - Includes installing radar feedback signs, ADA compliant curb ramps, speed tables, traffic circles, median islands, and striping at various locations.
- Wharf Street Railroad Crossing Improvements - Installation of raised median on Wharf St at Canal Blvd that allows BNSF to install new CPUC Standard 9 Railroad Flashing Light Signal Assembly with automatic gate. Construction will be completed in the middle of 2012.
