Community Event At Concord’s Cambridge Park Seeks To Make Monument Blvd. Safer For Walking, Biking, and Rolling

The City of Concord is submitting a grant application to attempt to make Monument Boulevard safe and comfortable for people walking, biking, and rolling.

The Monument Blvd Trails-to-Transit project will build a 1.5-mile-long separated walking & biking path on Monument Boulevard from the Iron Horse Trail in the west to Walters Way in the east. This project will help residents of the Monument Corridor safely access parks, schools, BART, downtown, and other community destinations.

The City of Concord is partnering with Monument Impact to gather input from residents who use Monument Blvd every day. Join the City of Concord at Cambridge Park from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Friday, May 17 to review plans for the corridor.

How will construction effect traffic ?
Will separated walking & biking path effect access to businesses ?
Aren’t sidewalks traditionally used for walking & biking ?
Is this an election year ?

If you cycled along monument there is a high chance you would get hit by a car.

What a joke. Want that area safer ? Set up a perimeter and send in ICE door to door. Round up every illegal. They should’ve been driven out 40-50 years ago. Enough with the lawlessness. Every apartment complex in Concord should be reevaluated, and if it houses people that are career criminals, torn down and never rebuilt. You have all these shopping centers in Concord that are vacant because you’ve made the city a cess Pool for illegals, Bums, and criminals. Every city council member that’s been in power in the city of Concord for the last 60 years should have charges pressed on them for allowing these ppl to take root. The charges of the corruption and treason As well as the contractors they work with to profit off of these crimes.

When I moved up here in 1980, a girl could walk the entire length of Monument Blvd. at Midnight on a Saturday night and be perfectly safe. Not anymore.

“And be perfectly safe”
C’mon Anon, it wasn’t safe there even back in the 70’s.
I was there often enough to know better.

You could also make jaywalking illegal again, that would be a major safety boost.

OMG!OMG! May 13, 2024 - 10:04 PM - 10:04 PM

Reganti Dr near the Korean market is risky, almost hit a bike coming against traffic on the sidewalk and crossing while I was in the proess of making a right turn. This has happened more than once. Trying to watch cars flying down Monument like it’s a freeway, looking left and trying to merge and right to look for bicycles riding against traffic on the sidewalk – ugh!

Can someone please explain what is meant by “rolling”? Isn’t bicycling “rolling”? Am I the only one who hasn’t heard that before?

WC Resident May 14, 2024 - 8:38 AM - 8:38 AM

@prairiegirl – I’ll take a guess that “rolling” refers to electric or gas powered skateboards and unicycles. Presumably it also includes in-line and traditional skates. Presumably there is also a new age term for the electric bicycles that these days look more like small motorcycles.

Thanks! Makes sense.

If you would like to make that area safer for bikes and pedestrians, have an officer post up at the stop sign at Victory and Rae Ann. Within 10 minutes, you will see no less than 25 vehicles running that stop sign.

Now that we are done with Concord Blvd and the intersection coming from clayton/sunset we should focus on bringing back Willow Pass Road to a 1 lane as well as Clayton Road. After we are done with that we should amke Ygancio Valley Road back to one lane. All for the greater good.
