The Loveridge Road segment is the first construction segment along Highway 4, closest to the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station. The project will expand the highway from four to eight lanes, including three mixed flow lanes and one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane, from just west of Loveridge Road to just west of Somersville Road/Auto Center Drive. The project includes the reconstruction of the Loveridge Road interchange, freeway auxiliary lanes, and a median wide enough to accommodate mass transit (eBART).
