City of Alameda Transportation Projects
Central Avenue: The concept for this project includes a reduction from four to three travel lanes, a center turn lane, bike lanes, a two-way separated bikeway adjacent to three schools, two traffic signals, curb extensions, pedestrian refuge islands, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, new crosswalks and street trees/rain gardens.
Clement Avenue: This project consists of a bikeway, curb extensions, rectangular rapid flashing beacons, sidewalk/curb ramp improvements, potential railroad track removal and street trees.
Clement Avenue/Tilden Way: This project will create a complete street, utilizing the abandoned railroad right of way along Tilden Way and the eastern terminus of Clement Avenue. It will also build the most eastern segment of the 4-mile east-west Cross Alameda Trail, and will directly connect to the Clement Avenue Complete Streets project, also part of the Cross Alameda Trail.
Cross Alameda Trail: This project, to be built in segments, is envisioned as a premiere cross-town, low-stress four-mile bicycling and walking corridor that will connect the west side of the island to the east, from the Seaplane Lagoon at Alameda Point to the Miller-Sweeney (Fruitvale) Bridge.
Otis Drive: The goals of this project are to reduce speeds and flooding and to improve safety for all users including the consideration of a bikeway, enhanced bus stops and streetscape features.
Other Transportation Projects (Not lead by City)
Oakland Alameda Access Project (formerly called the “Broadway/Jackson” Project): This project, led by the Alameda County Transportation Commission, includes improvements to the Jackson Street on-ramp and off-ramp, Sixth Street, Webster Tube entrance from 5th & Broadway, and pedestrian and bicycle improvements to the Webster and Posey Tubes and to adjacent streets in Alameda and Oakland, plus elimination of the Broadway off-ramp. City of Alameda staff is actively engaging with staff from Alameda CTC, Caltrans and the City of Oakland to pursue a mutually beneficial multimodal circulation project in and around the Broadway/Jackson interchanges. The project is in the environmental phase. There is $75 million from Measure B/BB funds that are available to help fund this project once the final project alternative is approved.
I-880/29th Avenue/23rd Avenue Interchange Improvement Project in Oakland: The City of Alameda, Caltrans, the City of Oakland and the Alameda County Transportation Commission have developed a project to implement operational and safety improvements along I-880 between 23rd and 29th Avenues in Oakland. The Alameda CTC has been managing this project. The construction phase of the project began in 2014, and completion is expected in 2019.
These projects are funded by a variety of federal, state and local sources including the gasoline tax - SB 1 monies(PDF, 132KB) - and the transportation sales tax monies - Measure B and Measure BB.
