Wolfe Mason Associates completed survey, prepared base maps, and began preliminary design work, but the Port of Oakland began entertaining a developer proposal. If development proceeds, BCDC will require the developer to construct the trail. Measure DD project was on hold for two years; the Port then entertained an offer from the City but did not find it acceptable. The City has proposed construction of an interim trail, but the Port has not responded.  Discussions between the City and Port are ongoing.


Development. Measure DD bonds: $3.3 million.
Maintenance. The project will be maintained the City of Oakland with funds provided by the Landscaping and Lighting Assessment District.
