Hopkins Corridor, North Berkeley
The Hopkins Corridor Traffic and Placemaking Study is a "conceptual design" study, with the primary focus centered around community outreach. Through this study, the City of Berkeley will be collecting placemaking and street design ideas directly from the North Berkeley residents, businesses, employees, and other key stakeholders who frequent this unique and joyful corner of Berkeley. This study is specifically catered to take a holistic approach to "Complete Streets" design, by garnering public feedback through multiple online workshops and working closely with residents and visitors in order to better understand their specific needs, the end result being the delivery of a final conceptual design and preferred set of options for traffic and placemaking improvements along the Hopkins Corridor. The impetus for the study was a Budget Referral approved by the Berkeley City Council in 2018.
