Christie Avenue Bike Path

Location: Emeryville


The completion of the Christie Avenue Bay Trail Gap, called “The Emeryville Connection,” adds a vital link to the ambitious Bay Trail project. A special ribbon-cutting ceremony on Bike to Work Day officially anointed the section as one of the most desirable bike projects by Bike East Bay. This connectivity, although small, paves the way for a continuous ride from Richmond all the way to San Leandro.

PGAdesign assisted with establishing plans for the connection and completing planting design. The path incorporated the existing public right-of-way without reducing vehicle capacity.  The attractive planting is Bay Friendly, drought tolerant, and filtration areas treat stormwater runoff from the path.
