7th Street Grade Separation Project
Summary: 7th Street, a major roadway within the Port, will be expanded. A new overpass will carry 7th Street above the Union Pacific and BNSF railroad tracks. This project is closely tied to the installation of intelligent transportation systems on Port roads and improvements to Middle Harbor Road.
Benefits: An expanded 7th Street will smooth the flow of truck traffic in and out of the Port, reducing emissions. The overpass will enable Union Pacific and BNSF railroads to expand.
Partner: Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC) is managing this project with financial and engineering support from the Port of Oakland.
