Oakland Multi-Use Path Strategy Project Kicks-Off!

With the recent adoptions of both the Oakland Local Street Network Plan and Oakland Development Code, the City is ready to move forward with its latest project: A Multi-Use Path Strategy (MPS).

The MPS is a state funded study of the feasibility of a multi-use off-street path in Oakland, including considerations around access, engineering, natural resource protection, cost and other hurdles for making a dedicated path possible. Oakland has some opportunities that are very unique (including the publicly owned Ash Creek Right-of-Way and the land just south of Calapooya Creek recently acquired by the City ). 

The project will result in a Plan/Report documenting the challenges and opportunities associated with a Multi-Use Path in Oakland, as well as priorities for moving the concept(s) forward. 

The project will involve public open houses and numerous work sessions with a "Project Advisory Committee" made up of Oakland residents, public officials and other partner agency representatives. Those interested can follow progress on this website (including viewing project materials on the Multi-Use Path Files page).  

A project flyer has been developed to provide a succinct overview of the Multi-Use Path project (including benefits, schedule, and contacts).  Below is a map showing some of the preliminary path concepts.
