Mokelumne Trail Bicycle/Pedestrian Overcrossing
The Mokelumne Trail Bicycle/Pedestrian Overcrossing project will construct a pedestrian and bicycle bridge that spans Highway 4 – closing a gap along the Mokelumne Trail, and providing safe access for bicyclists and pedestrians. The overcrossing will include a multi-span bridge with a column in the Highway 4 median. Bridge approaches will be constructed on earthen embankments. The path will range from 12 to 16 feet in width.
The eBART Next Segment study developed by the Bay Area Rapid Transit District identifies a potential station in the vicinity of the Mokelumne Bicycle/Pedestrian Overcossing. The design of the overcrossing will accommodate bicycle and pedestrian access and connection for the future Brentwood Transit Center.
The Mokelumne Trail runs from the Martinez Regional Shoreline to the north and Oakland/Jack London Square shoreline in the west. The eastern boundary is located in Antioch where the Delta meets the San Francisco Bay, and Brentwood near the Contra Costa- San Joaquin County border. The existing Mokelumne Trail in the overcrossing project area is part of the larger Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail that will, when completed, connect six counties across California from the East Bay to the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
