Successful transit-oriented development depends on creating an environment that is engaging to bicyclists, pedestrians, and other transit users, including the many who access the station by car. Public improvements are required to create a safe and inviting place for people to live, work, and use local services including public transit. This project will support future station and access improvements at the El Cerrito Plaza, del Norte & Richmond BART stations.
The project will construct station and access improvements that will enhance and support the development of transitoriented development at West County BART stations and help create a sense of “place” in these station areas. These improvements may include parking, pathways, plazas and sidewalks, upgraded lighting, restroom renovations, bicycle facilities, signage, additional vertical circulation, security features, landscaping and other public improvements.
