Fernside Boulevard Traffic Calming and Bikeways Project

Project purpose: This project will create a design concept to update Fernside Boulevard from Tilden Way to San Jose Ave, aiming to reduce auto speeds and increase safety and mobility for all road users, as well as develop design concepts to implement Active Transportation Plan bikeways. It will also work to develop a near-term striping update for Fernside from Tilden Way to High St that can be implemented with pavement resurfacing.

Tell us what you think! The project team is currently seeking input on the community's experiences and priorities for the corridor and has completed an analysis of traffic speeds, crash data, previous community input, and more. The public input and existing conditions analysis will be used to develop concept alternatives for potential improvements, then an additional round of public outreach is planned for spring 2024 to solicit input on these alternatives. 

Take the survey by 12/17
