From a freeway-covering park to miles of tunnels, Berkeley could seek federal funds to study changes to one of the Bay Area’s most congested roadways.
Gilman Street will be closed between Fourth and Second streets from Tuesday until June 21.
A lane of I-80 East will also be closed. Caltrans aims to finish the bulk of repairs needed after a July hit-and-run.
The man and his company will be responsible for the $2.1 million freeway repairs, officials said.
Authorities say they have identified the driver from Wednesday’s hit-and-run collision in northwest Berkeley.
After the collision, one lane of the freeway was shut down “to accommodate crews inspecting the overcrossing.”
As of Thursday, the officer remained in the hospital but is now in stable condition.
Authorities said the men had gotten out of their vehicles to argue about the collision and were standing in traffic when the other driver hit them.
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.”
The statues stood on the pedestrian bridge over I-80 for 12 years. It will take 3 days to remove them.
The ‘”love-em” or “hate-em” art pieces will be gone by Tuesday.
Firefighters worked to control a blaze that broke out Monday morning at the West Berkeley homeless encampment near the Seabreeze market.
