Solano Complete Streets better alternative

AS&R has expressed disappointment in the Solano Complete Streets Draft Plan that was released in February 2019. The plan offered no improvements for people riding bikes on Solano Ave. We heard from many people that bikes don’t really belong on Solano Ave., there are good alternative east-west bike routes nearby, and if we want to […]

Gilman Intersection Improvement Designs

As part of the reconstruction of the Gilman Avenue interchange at I-80, an active transportation overpass of I-80 will be built to accommodate the vast majority of people that would bike or use sidewalks to the waterfront but not if they have to go along Gilman under the freeway. In order to make the approach […]

Albany’s Most Relaxed Cycling Routes

The HAWK signal on San Pablo at Dartmouth was finally turned a couple months ago. This provides the critical link in Albany’s most relaxed cycling network. It allows riding between the Bay Trail and the Ohlone Greenway, and all points between, with only six blocks on street, all of them on Dartmouth, which has among […]

Sidewalk Repair Update

Albany Strollers & Rollers’ (AS&R’s) almost decade-long effort to have the City perform most sidewalk repair is coming to fruition. This effort started in 2009 with the development of AS&R’s sidewalk survey methodology. This methodology was put into practice by volunteers measuring the most impassable location along each block across Albany in 2010-2011. In 2011 […]
