Fernside Boulevard Traffic Calming and Bikeways Project

Latest news: Save the dates for our second round of public engagement, focusing on design concept options! Our main event will be an in-person workshop on June 5. We will also host a lunchtime virtual workshop with the same information on May 29 and an online survey open May 29 - June 19. We will hold discussions at the Transportation Commission (date TBD) and the Commission on Persons with Disabilities (June 5). Details coming soon!

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.
