Local & Regional Projects
Cowell Road/ Willow Pass Road Complete Street Feasibility Study
The scope of the Study includes Cowell Road from Ygnacio Valley Road to Galindo Street, Willow Pass Road from Ashdale Drive to Market Street, and Galindo Street between Cowell Road and Willow Pass Road. The purpose of the study is to develop context-sensitive design concepts for the three streets with the goal of improving comfort and safety for all users, including bicyclists, pedestrians, transit users, and vehicles.
The reconnaissance phase involves data gathering in the field and interviewing key community stakeholders, including the Downtown business community, area schools, bicycle groups, and residents. In addition to stakeholder interviews, the study team invites you to share your ideas via this Input Map.
Phase 2-Collaborative Design
Members of the community will be invited to participate in Design Labs in April to learn more about the project and to evaluate possible roadway alternatives. The Design Labs are interactive workshops where participants can collaborate together with the study team in developing alternative designs for each of the study roads. More information about Design Labs will be posted here as the study progresses.
Phase 3-Refine & Present
The study will conclude with this final phase. Based on feedback from the various outreach efforts, a preferred design alternative will be developed and refined, leading to a plan for each corridor that responds to the needs of all users.
Capital Improvement Project Reports

Grant Funded Projects
Contra Costa Transportation Authority
The Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) is a public agency formed by Contra Costa voters in 1988 to manage the county's transportation sales tax program and to do countywide transportation planning. CCTA is responsible for maintaining and improving the county’s transportation system by planning, funding, and delivering critical transportation infrastructure projects and programs that connect our communities, foster a strong economy, increase sustainability, and safely and efficiently get people where they need to go. CCTA is also the county's designated Congestion Management Agency, responsible for putting programs in place to keep traffic levels manageable. CCTA works to improve our quality of life and help make our community great – now and in the future.
Metropolitan Transportation Commission
The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) is the transportation planning, financing and coordinating agency for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. MTC collaborates with a network of other public agencies to help support the streets, roads, highways, transit systems and other transportation resources that help millions of people get to where they need to be. Think BART, your ferry ride, miles of bike paths, FasTrak, freeway conditions, your commute times, our bridges... even climate change and how it affects the projects that they work on. MTC touches it all with a focus on building a stronger transportation system that works for everyone, promotes economic vitality and protects our environment.
