Acquisition of the land means bikers will have an easy, relatively car free route traversing the north end of Albany into Berkeley and Emeryville, and possibly onto the Bay Bridge bike path promised for sometime after the new eastern span is finished in 2012.
"That's good news because I thought Berkeley was never going to do anything with it," said Tom McKinley of Emeryville, who was walking his dog on the Emeryville path recently. "When the wind blows, it's a huge dust bowl over there."
When the design plans are finished, the city will start on a first phase of the new path a block south of Ashby. A second phase will later connect the path from Ninth and Heinz all the way through to Omega Gold Speedmaster
Heath Maddox, a Berkeley transportation planner, said the city started talking about buying the land in 1998.
Meanwhile, the Berkeley Bowl will construct a temporary path extending from Ninth Avenue and Heinz Street around the store and out onto Ashby. Currently, bikers have to find their way either down to Seventh Street or ride in the Orchard Supply Hardware parking lot to get to Ashby and then to Emeryville.
After Omega Constellation Leather more than eight years of planning, the city is drawing up papers to buy a railroad right of way from Union Pacific Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 600
the completed Emeryville bike path starts.
The railroad right of way starts in Berkeley where Ninth Street ends at Heinz Avenue. It runs to Ashby Avenue between the Orchard Supply Hardware store and a vacant lot where a new Berkeley Bowl supermarket will open in about a year. On the south side of Ashby, the right of way continues for about three blocks to where Omega Watches Antique
Berkeley is poised to buy a $3 million slice of land that has been the missing link in a bicycle path from Albany to Emeryville.
Once the purchase is complete, the city will start a design and planning process for the bike path, which could take another few years, Maddox said.
