West Oakland Link

The West Oakland Link is a proposed 1.1-mile-long elevated pedestrian and bicycle pathway that will link West Oakland to Judge John Sutter Regional Shoreline park and the SF Bay Trail.

The West Oakland Link will increase public safety by enabling residents of West Oakland and the greater East Bay to bike and walk on a structure that is separated from the truck and rail traffic in that area. 

The Link will connect Mandela Parkway in West Oakland with key parts of the San Francisco Bay Trail: the Bay Bridge East Span path, Judge John Sutter Regional Shoreline (formerly Gateway Park) and Treasure Island. The Link is part of the planned Bay Skyway project that will create a pedestrian and bicycle path between the East Bay and downtown San Francisco.

Project Support & Funding

The projected $65 million project is supported by the Bay Area Toll Authority, Alameda County Transportation Commission, the City of Oakland and Caltrans. The proposed project is planned to be implemented in phases, based on the availability of State and other funds.
