Here is your Opportunity to Provide Input on Transportation Projects in Contra Costa County

What’s your transportation vision for Contra Costa? What programs should we invest in? Should we extend BART, put more buses on the road, fix local streets, create more bike lanes, make our streets more pedestrian friendly, or improve our highways? All these questions and more are part of a new outreach effort we are kicking off for the Countywide Transportation Plan (CTP) update – and we want to hear your ideas to keep Contra Costa moving.

The Countywide Transportation Plan is a planning effort conducted in collaboration with Contra Costa municipalities and local agencies, and with input from the public. The CTP outlines our collective, 25-year vision for transportation in Contra Costa, and it establishes goals, strategies, projects, and other actions that will help make that vision a reality.

As part of the CTP process, CCTA wants to know what transportation issues you think are important so we can prioritize where to spend valuable time and resources. This is your chance to share your ideas for new transportation projects and programs in Contra Costa.

Past CTP planning efforts have produced ideas such as the Caldecott Tunnel Fourth Bore, Highway 4 widening, and BART system extensions. We’d love to hear your ideas on the next big investments we might make – but also how we might better maintain local streets, reduce traffic congestion, and make Contra Costa safer for bicyclists and pedestrians.

There are several ways you can participate:

  • Attend a public workshop to hear more about the CTP process and give your feedback. (Dates and times to be announced soon!)
  • Check out CCTA’s online public engagement tool at to tell us your priorities, share your bright ideas, and see what other ideas your neighbors are talking about.
  • Call 925.256.4720 to request that a paper copy of CCTA’s online public engagement tool be mailed to you.

Your opinions and ideas will help shape Contra Costa County’s transportation planning for the next 25 years. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate!
