Transportation and Circulation
Oakland’s Board of Port Commissioners has placed high priority on addressing maritime industry concerns about the effect of the proposed Howard Terminal development on truck movement and access to the Port. To this end, the Port has identified recommended Seaport Compatibility Measures to promote non-interference with ingress and egress of trucks and other seaport transportation vehicles into and from the Seaport and avoiding congestion of Seaport-related traffic routes. More information is available here.
In addition, the Port has embarked on the Long-Term Seaport Transportation and Circulation Study. The purpose of the Study is to analyze long-term transportation issues resulting from cumulative Seaport growth and surrounding development and to identify potential solutions to address those transportation issues. The Port expects to complete the Study in 2022. The Study is a component of a larger seaport planning effort that is concurrently underway.
