In October, the city of El Cerrito began work to improve the upper stretch of Fairmount Avenue from Richmond Street, just east of the Plaza BART station, to Colusa Avenue at Sunset View Cemetery.
Funded through the city’s redevelopment agency, the project has two key goals: to improve pedestrian safety and enhance physical beauty throughout this important community corridor.
Watch the video below to learn more about the work completed so far, community reaction to the project, and what’s still to come.
