Announcement: On March 21, 2023, the City Council endorsed the design concept and authorized the consultant amendment to proceed with design - staff report is here
Background: The Clement Avenue/Tilden Way project uses the abandoned railroad right-of-way at Clement Avenue and Tilden Way to extend the Cross Alameda Trail between Broadway and the Miller-Sweeney/Fruitvale Bridge and to improve the truck and bus routes in this area. This project connects to the City's Clement Avenue Complete Street project, and to the City of Oakland's planned and funded Fruitvale Avenue improvements. In 2017, the Alameda County Transportation Commission awarded a grant to the City of Alameda for $10 million including local match to close the gap in the Cross Alameda Trail and truck route. This project is funded by Measure BB, Alameda County's transportation sales tax.
Concept: Includes a bikeway, walkway, road diet, westbound Clement Avenue extension, open space, stormwater gardens, bus stop improvements, a dog park and a roundabout at the Blanding/Tilden/Fernside intersection. Road diets reduce crashes up to 47 percent. Roundabouts reduce fatal and severe injury crashes up to 78 percent compared to traffic signals.
