The Transportation Commission approved the final design plan for the Clement Avenue Safety Improvement Project on Wednesday, May 27. City/consulting staff will request City Council approval on Tues, July 7. We invite you to provide input via email to Gail Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 510-747-6892.
Final Design: The final design provides for:
- Two 11 foot travel lanes for automobiles and trucks;
- One 14 foot protected, two-way bikeway from Grand to Walnut and from Elm to Oak, and a 9-11 foot two-way bikeway from Walnut to Elm and from Oak to Broadway;
- One 8 foot parking lane on the south side of the street from Grand to Walnut and from Elm to Oak; and
- Two 7 foot parking lanes on the south and north sides of the street from Walnut to Elm and from Park Street to Broadway.
To accommodate the Cross Alameda Trail, daylight intersections for safety, comply with ADA for a continuous path of travel, and provide adequate space for trucks servicing businesses along the corridor, the total number of public on-street parking spaces on Clement Avenue between Grand Street and Broadway will be reduced from approximately 300 to approximately 155 spaces.

In April 2017, the Alameda County Transportation Commission awarded a grant to the City of Alameda for $5 million to improve Clement Avenue. Improvements include the removal of the abandoned railroad tracks, installing a bikeway and enhancing pedestrian access. This project will construct a portion of the Cross Alameda Trail while ensuring that this designated truck route is in a good state of repair and maintaining truck access. Clement Avenue is the main thoroughfare in the Northern Waterfront priority development area and is a gateway to Oakland, Fruitvale BART and beyond. This project consists of a bikeway, curb extensions, stop signs, sidewalk/curb ramp improvements and railroad track removal.

This complete street corridor concept proposal is funded by Measures B/BB, which are Alameda County's transportation sales tax measures - and a federal grant.
