Central Ave I-80 Underpass Improvement Community Workshop @ El Cerrito Council Chambers
Jun 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Do you bike or walk on Central Avenue under I-80 to reach the places you enjoy?
Would you like to help make it easier and safer to do so?

CalTrans District 4 wants your ideas on how to transform the underpass into a high-quality pedestrian and bicycle connection!

Current Underpass

Help improve your biking and walking experience in the East Bay!
Join us at the Community Workshop to share ideas on the project design. We will discuss safety features, lighting, wayfinding and other design elements.

Free Walking Tour of El Cerrito’s Gambling Past @ Macaroni Grill
Apr 14 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Take a journey to the area once known as No Man’s Land and learn about the era when El Cerrito was known as a wide open city at a free walking tour, led by Chris Horn of the El Cerrito Historical Society.
From the teens into the 1940’s El Cerrito was a center for gambling, dog racing, drinking, and vice. The Rancho nightclub was opened in 1933, less than a month after the end of prohibition, in the historic Castro Adobe. An array of nightclubs sprang up on San Pablo Avenue. The walk will pass by the site of some of these clubs including the Rancho, Hollywood Club, the Wagon Wheel, the Kona Club and It Club.
Meet in the El Cerrito Plaza parking lot, near Macaroni Grill.
