A project to build two huge roundabouts to replace the chaotic intersections on Gilman Street at Interstate 80 in West Berkeley is set to begin by the end of the year.
This month, the community will get its latest chance to offer feedback on plans to build two roundabouts on Gilman Street at I-80 to improve a hairy traffic situation that’s renowned throughout the Bay Area.
Caltrans will begin work in May to install two new roundabouts and a new pedestrian/bike bridge at what some call the “most dysfunctional intersection in the country.”
Business and property owners, along with cycling advocates and other community members, had a chance to weigh in Wednesday about plans to build two large roundabouts on Gilman.
The Alameda County Transportation Commission and Caltrans are working with officials from Berkeley and Emeryville to improve safety and traffic flow where Interstate 80 meets Ashby Avenue.
First elected in 1992, Maio has served more than 25 years, making her the longest-serving council member in Berkeley.
