Interstate 80 / Central Avenue Interchange Improvements

Central Avenue serves as the primary connection between the El Cerrito Plaza BART station and the I-80 and I-580 freeways. It also serves as an important east-west route between commercial areas and local neighborhoods. The four closely spaced signalized intersections along Central Avenue between Jacuzzi Street and Pierce Street lack sufficient storage capacity, resulting in poor intersection operations and heavy congestion during peak travel times, especially on weekends.
