Caldecott Fourth Bore Medallion Design Competition – 511 Contra Costa

Caldecott Fourth Bore Medallion Design Competition

Above the new Caldecott Fourth Bore, six medallions designed by students in K-12 from Contra Costa and Alameda counties will be cast in concrete. The medallions adorning the entrances of the original two bores were designed in the mid-1930s, and the Caldecott Tunnel and the portals were designated a City of Oakland Landmark in 1980.
The Caldecott Fourth Bore Medallion Design Competition will have two phases.
