On September 17, 2019, the City Council approved the recommended concept of a two-way bikeway on the north side of the street with "sharrows" - shared bike/motorist lane markings in the eastbound travel lane. The environmental clearance is expected to be completed in 2020, and the final design and construction are expected to be completed in 2021.
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 potential 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, railroad track removal and street trees.

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.
