Please Join us for our next Panel Talk February 5th:

What will it take to create a Train Quiet Zone and improve safety on Embarcadero in Jack London?

Rail transit is on the rise through Jack London, and so is activity, visitor foot traffic, residential population, employment, and businesses. Community stakeholders in Jack London have long been interested in improving the pedestrian and vehicular train crossings in Jack London to create safer streets and facilitate a Train Quiet Zone, and many even contributed funds to begin the technical work necessary to kickstart the project. Hear from local and regional experts discuss what it will take to bring this significant infrastructure investment to Jack London. Speakers include Peter Gertler, Senior VP of HNTB, Joel Cox, Chief Engineer, Capitol Corridor, and Alta Planning.
