Major and Minor Pedestrian Projects on Local Streets

Paint and signage change the street crossings for 10 intersections in Piedmont.

Pavement with painted crosswalks, the word “STOP” and a stationary stop signs will give pedestrians safer street crossings at minimal cost.  City Administrator Paul Benoit reported the total cost for the 10 intersection improvements ($2,338 each), brings the revised total contract to $26,086, funded by Measure B and BB funds.

The Kingston-Linda-Rose Triangle in Oakland and Piedmont is well under construction this summer.

On July 5, the City Council authorized a contract with Ray’s Electric for their “base bid of $207,362” for trench work for the intersection project providing crosswalks on the Oakland and Piedmont border with a large pedestrian island in the middle of Kingston Street. Three ornamental street lamps will be a feature of the Triangle.
