Local officials are holding another public workshop Monday (June 9) to gather more citizen ideas for the design of the Iron Horse Regional Trail overcrossings for Bollinger Canyon and Crow Canyon roads in San Ramon.
The city-hosted meeting is set to run from 6-8 p.m. in the Fountain Room at the San Ramon Community Center, 12501 Alcosta Blvd.
Attendees will have the chance to participate in brainstorming and collaborative map-making as well as take a virtual site tour and visual preference survey. A similar workshop was held May 20.
The community input sessions are part of the overcrossings project's Phase 2, a collaborative effort between the city of San Ramon, Contra Costa County and the East Bay Regional Park District aimed at conducting public outreach and design activities into early next year. The phase is funded by Measure J, the half-cent sales tax approved by county voters in 2004.
"The proposed bicycle and pedestrian overcrossings will enhance safety and reduce delays for trail users and roadway users alike," said Lisa Bobadilla, San Ramon's transportation division manager.
Officials hope to obtain additional grant funding to undertake Phase 3 of the project, which would involve final design, environmental approval and construction. Phase 1, already completed, analyzed the feasibility of building overhead crossings along parts of the trail.
