• Goodrick Ave. to Bay View Trail: EBRPD has completed construction of public access improvements on the southern end of the Breuner Marsh Restoration and Public Access Project. This includes a staging area with restrooms and motor vehicle parking accessible from the northern end of Goodrick Ave., 0.3 miles of Bay Trail leading north over Rheem Creek and a 0.3-mile spur trail to a scenic vista point. On May 3, 2016 EBRPD’s Board of Director’s approved a $4.3 million contract for building the third and last phase of the Breuner project to complete another 1.2 miles of Bay Trail linking with the Bay View Trail in Point Pinole Regional Shoreline (PPRS). Construction is scheduled to begin July 2016 and be completed by February 2017. See the Breuner Marsh site plan >>
Complementing EBRPD’s Breuner project, the City of Richmond has completed 95% pre-final design for a 0.3-mile Class I Bay Trail section along Goodrick Ave. to connect the Breuner trail staging area with the Bay Trail along the Richmond Parkway. Geotechnical and environmental studies have been completed, and an Initial Study is being prepared for compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act. The City and TRAC are working together in an effort to locate funds for building this trail.

• Atlas Road Entry to Cook’s Point Trail: EBRPD began construction of the Atlas Road Extension Improvement Project in 2016 to create a second PPRS entrance via a bridge over UP railroad tracks. The project includes a two-lane road entering PPRS and 0.23 miles of Bay Trail connecting the Atlas Road Bay Trail section with Cook’s Point Trail, as well as a parking area, restrooms and picnic areas. The project should be completed by early 2017. See the Atlas Road site plan >>
