On Wednesday, February 12th, Mayor Christian Patz, Vice Mayor Dianne Martinez and City Council Member Ally Medina, along with representatives from partner agencies, City staff and other interested parties, gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony for the South Bayfront Bicycle/Pedestrian Bridge Project. Work on the project, which will ultimately allow pedestrians and cyclists to access Bay Street by crossing the span above the railroad tracks, began in early January. The new Horton Landing Park will be built on the east side of the train tracks and will be a new addition to the Emeryville Greenway. Pathways in the park will connect the bridge to adjacent streets at Horton Street, just south of 53rd Street and near Stanford Avenue. The greenway within Horton Landing Park will connect to a future greenway that extends southward to Sherwin near Halleck Street.
The project is currently scheduled to be completed at the end of October 2021.
UPDATE: January 24, 2020
Weather permitting, Pile Driving along Ohlone Way will now begin the week of January 27, 2020. Once started work will proceed as quickly as possible. Work will advance along the proposed West Stair, then move to West Arch Span support at the very end of Ohlone Way, then move to the West Ramps supports between the Bay Street South Garage and the UPRR tracks. Pile Driving work on the West Side is currently expected to continue to the end of March 2020.
After Pile Driving Work is completed near the Bay Street Shopping Center, the equipment will be moved to the Horton Landing Park site to begin foundation work on the East side of the UPRR tracks. Pile Driving Work, in total, is expected to finish at the end of May 2020.
Construction noise is permitted from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM - Monday through Friday.
UPDATE: January 17, 2020
Beginning Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - weather permitting - a crane for the anticipated pile driving will be delivered and erected at Bay Street. Ohlone Way will be narrowed down to one lane for approximately 2 days to allow for the delivery and installation of the crane, with a full-time Traffic Controller. Please plan alternate routes accordingly. Pile driving is expected to begin Friday, January 24, 2020.

Construction to Begin . . .
Starting January 6, 2020, Ghilotti Construction will begin physical work to construct the South Bayfront Pedestrian Bicycle Bridge project which includes construction of Horton Landing Park. Initial work will be located along Ohlone Way within the Bay Street Shops and Residences and will be about constructing reinforced concrete stairs and ramps to the Span over the Union Pacific Railroad tracks. Some related work will involve relocating storm drain and a short segment of a Sanitary Sewer Main between the South Bay Street Garage and the Union Pacific Property.
