Responding to concerns from Bay Point residents, Contra Costa County has developed a plan to make it easier to walk and bicycle along Bailey Road. The Bailey Road Pedestrian and Bicycle Improvement Plan details specific improvements to help people walk or bicycle along and across Bailey Road. The plan also includes landscaping recommendations to make Bailey Road more attractive as a gateway to the community.
The plan covers Bailey Road from Willow Pass Road to the State Route 4 freeway ramps and BART Station entrance road just south of the freeway. This 0.6-mile segment of Bailey Road has a number of difficulties and challenges for pedestrians and bicyclists, including people walking to and from local businesses, children walking to and from Bel Air Elementary School, and local commuters going to and from the BART Station.
One pedestrian problem already has been resolved, as the County Public Works Department has installed a lighted pedestrian crosswalk north of Mims Road, at the point where the Delta DeAnza Regional Trail and the Bel Air Trail meet Bailey Road. But numerous other difficulties will remain for pedestrians and bicyclists along Bailey Road.
The links above can provide you with the entire plan, or a 1-page summary of the plan, and a timeline that shows the steps that must be taken in order to construct the improvements.
Comments should be sent to Jamar Stamps, Transportation Planner, in the Contra Costa County Department of Conservation and Development. He can be reached at e-mail

This planning effort was financed through a grant generously provided by the Contra Costa Transportation Authority and TRANSPLAN, which is a transportation coordinating group for the communities in eastern Contra Costa County.
Participating agencies in the project include Tri Delta Transit, the City of Pittsburg, BART, the East Bay Regional Park District, and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
Valuable input was provided throughout the process by the Bay Point Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) and by interested residents of Bay Point and Pittsburg.
