Harbor Bay Ferry parking discussion next Thursday

The Transportation Commission is set to consider Harbor Bay Ferry parking recommendations.

The Public Works Department has developed these recommendations to alleviate parking on Adelphian Way and Harbor Bay Parkway. Plans include the conversion of 24 two-hour parking spaces on Adelphian Way to unrestricted parking spaces, while keeping seven two-hour parking spaces in place.

Public Works is also recommending adding 25 unrestricted parking spaces to Harbor Bay Parkway. Plans call for prohibiting parking on both streets from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The commission will meet at 7 p.m., Thursday, March 25, in the City Council Chambers at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave. The meeting is open to the public.

Caltrans Revamping 23rd, 29th Avenues

Reconstruction of Interstate 880’s 23rd Avenue and 29th Avenue overcrossings in Oakland will begin on Friday, April 3, and stretch to October 2016. The work will effect traffic using the Park Street Bridge. Caltrans will demolish the existing overcrossings and replace them with new ones.

When work is completed the pair of two-lane 23rd Avenue overcrossings will have single three-lane span. The 29th Avenue overcrossing, which currently has two lanes will also have a three-lane crossing. Caltrans says that the new spans will offer improved bike and pedestrian access.

Work on the High Street Bridge continues. The bridge will remain closed through Monday, April 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Crews are repairing the bridge’s deck and replacing the center lock, which holds the bridge in place in the down position.
