West Oakland Link

The West Oakland Link is a proposed 1.1 mile-long elevated pedestrian and bicycle pathway that will link the West Oakland community to Gateway Park, which includes the SF Bay Trail.

West Oakland Link proposed project site

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. 

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.
