San Leandro Boulevard Pedestrian & Streetscape Project Completed
The $6.9 million BART-Downtown Pedestrian and Streetscape Interface project is now complete. The new street design improves pedestrian connectivity between the BART station and the heart of Downtown San Leandro.

The project features the following improvements:
- New wayfinding signage;
- West Juana Avenue gateway feature;
- Wider sidewalks;
- Enhanced landscaping, on-street parking, street lights, and sidewalk bulb-outs with specialty crosswalk paving;
- A new traffic signal at the intersection with Parrott Street;
- Accessibility upgrades to the intersections with Davis Street, West Juana Avenue, and the BART entrance.
