• Goodrick Ave. to Bay View Trail: EBRPD has completed construction of public access improvements on the southern end of the Breuner (renamed Dotson Family) Marsh Restoration and Public Access Project. This includes the Dotson Family Marsh staging area with restrooms and motor vehicle parking accessible from the northern end of Goodrick Ave. Construction is underway to complete 1.5 miles of Bay Trail by February 2017 leading north from the staging area over Rheem Creek to the Bay View Trail in Point Pinole Regional Shoreline (PPRS). See the site plan >>
Complementing EBRPD’s Bay Trail project, the City of Richmond has completed the final design for a 0.3-mile Class I Bay Trail section east of Goodrick Ave. to connect the Dotson Family Marsh staging area with the Class I Bay Trail along the Richmond Parkway. The Bay Trail Project awarded the City a grant of $130,000 toward construction. The City and TRAC are working to obtain the additional funding needed to complete this $1.106 million project.

• 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 >>
