It is with great pride and enthusiasm that we invite creative design teams to submit innovative proposals for the “Walk this Way: Broadway/Webster Project.” This comprehensive initiative is intended to transform both the Broadway and Webster Street I-880 Freeway underpasses, as well as the areas surrounding them. We are looking to create beautiful, safe, walkable, inviting, green, and iconic passageways that will help reconnect Oakland from its foothills to its waterfront by re-envisioning the areas near and under the I-880 Freeway in Downtown. This is the final step in stitching together business districts and residential neighborhoods all along the Broadway spine so they connect to the Oakland waterfront.

Oakland’s streets will soon look very different than they did just a few years ago. Bicycle, pedestrian and transit improvements have historically been ad hoc, the result of two factors: a culture that prioritized cars and, more importantly, the absence of a dedicated department overseeing the city’s transportation funds and projects. Earlier this year, Mayor Libby Schaaf established Oakland’s Department of Transportation (OakDOT) to bring much-needed structure and a vision that included bikes, pedestrians and transit to the city’s transportation efforts. SPUR has supported the creation of OakDOT because we feel that a well-run DOT is essential to the success of a 21st-century Oakland. The department’s newly released strategic plan confirms that Oakland is moving in the right direction.

A New Vision for Oakland’s Streets: the OakDOT Strategic Plan

The strategic plan just released by Oakland’s new Department of Transportation reflects the city’s activist spirit and opens a new chapter focused on easier and safer access to walking, biking and transit — for everyone. Here are five priorities in the plan that we think will make the biggest difference for Oakland’s transportation future, along...

Proposition 63, The Safety for All initiative, gives California voters the opportunity to keep guns and ammo out of the hands of violent, dangerous, hateful people this November. This proposition:

- Removes illegal guns from our communities by ensuring that dangerous criminals and domestic abusers sell or transfer their firearms after they’re convicted.

- Requires any business that sells ammunition to report if their ammunition is lost or stolen.

- Requires people to notify law enforcement if their guns are lost or stolen.

- Ensures people convicted of gun theft are ineligible to own guns.

- Strengthens our background check systems and ensures that CA law enforcement shares data about dangerous people with the FBI.
