Heavy Weight Corridor

On March 30, 1993 the Oakland City Council passed Ordinance No. 11568 which allows the Chief of Police to designate new roadways for the movement of heavy containers. This is to enable additional facilities to have access to Port marine terminals. For more information, please review the listed documents.
