🚧 Repave Telegraph Construction Update! 🚧 Installation of the striping on Telegraph from 51st to above 52nd is ongoing. The green bike lane and red bus-only lane on Northbound Telegraph between 51st and 52nd was painted yesterday.⁠

Plus for those frustrated by VERY slow car traffic -- have hope! Work has started to re-time all the signals on Telegraph from West MacArthur Blvd to 52nd St. Currently all the signals are timed for two lanes in each direction, helping cause the slow traffic speed. When the retiming is completed, car speed should be more around 25-27 mph.⁠

For details on remaining components of the project (loading zones, pedestrian plaza and more), check out RepaveTelegraph.org⁠

After much thought and consideration, we have made the difficult decision to postpone this Sunday's Picnic on Telegraph, due to poor air quality. All week, the air quality has continued to get worse, and the air quality forecast for this Sunday is not good. We look forward to seeing you in a couple weeks on Sunday, October 25th for the postponed Picnic on Telegraph. In addition to much cleaner air, we'll also have even more options for outdoor dining, shopping, fitness classes, and services!

Thanks to all our amazing participating businesses in Temescal, and our sponsors: The Skylyne At Temescal and Square One Yoga Studios, and media partner Yelp East Bay for graciously supporting the last minute date change.

General information

In 2004, the area’s property owners voted overwhelmingly to assess themselves an annual fee that goes towards maintaining and improving the streetscape, supporting businesses, and marketing Telegraph Avenue starting from 40th to 66th Street, including small portions of Shattuck Ave, 51st , and Claremont. We encourage property owners, merchants and residents to join our committees: Design, Economic Development, Promotion, & Security, dedicated to the vibrancy of Temescal and upper Telegraph. Ideas developed in these committees become the action plans for the Board of Directors.
