The northern end of Albany’s Ohlone Greenway re-opened today, with most, but not all, of the fences coming down. The fencing along Masonic will be removed this week, said Greg Jacobs, consulting engineer for Albany, and parking will return to the east side of Masonic by late this week, or early next week. Holes in the pavement will be patched first, Jacobs said.
Last Friday the jogging shoulders of the path were paved with decomposed granite. The path is not yet striped, due to a possible change in plans.
The pathway will remain open, but the dirt areas will be fenced off again soon – perhaps with flexible orange fencing – for landscaping.
The other closed section of the greenway, from Solano Avenue to Dartmouth Street, will re-open in late October at the soonest, Jacobs said today.
