Attend online open house on Nov. 10, complete survey by Nov. 28
Berkeley, California (Tuesday, November 09, 2021) - Use our online survey to give input on how we can change four streets on the south side of campus to incorporate the needs of bicyclists, pedestrians, bus riders and local businesses.
For the sections of Telegraph Avenue, Bancroft Way, Fulton Street, and Dana Street closest to campus, we ask how you travel to and from those areas, and we ask for your input on designs.
Each road is different. For example, options being considered for Bancroft include a protected bike lane, a dedicated bus lane, and a parking lane.
Everyone should be safe on Berkeley's roads, no matter how you travel.
Take the online survey before November 28
Share your input on possible designs:

Please share widely among any who live, work or are otherwise part of our community. The more people that fill out the survey, the broader the set of experiences we'll capture.

Goals and changes for Southside streets
Moving through Berkeley's Southside neighborhood can be a challenge. There are now more businesses and residents, and the area's close proximity to campus means that many walk, bike or use transit to move around. At the same time, there is increased freight and small package delivery.
A "Complete Street" is a safe street for all ages and abilities and will:
- Ensure safety for all persons walking, riding bicycles, riding transit, or driving, consistent with the City of Berkeley Vision Zero traffic safety policy
- Improve transit reliability and travel times consistent with the City of Berkeley General Plan Transportation Element Policy T-4 "Transit-First"
- Support the economic and cultural vitality of Berkeley's Southside neighborhood consistent with the Economic Development goals of the City of Berkeley Southside Plan
These efforts build on Berkeley's longstanding commitment to being responsive to the needs of the community and support the City's Strategic Plan goals to "provide state-of-the-art, well-maintained infrastructure, amenities, and facilities," and "create a resilient, safe, connected, and prepared City."
No matter how you move, we want you to be safe.
