The City has identified the Lincoln Avenue/Marshall Way/Pacific Avenue corridor between Alameda Point at Main Street/Central Avenue and Broadway in the east end of town as a high priority for safety and mobility improvements. City staff is working with Parisi Transportation Consulting to develop a safety and operational concept for the corridor.
Existing Conditions: The corridor connects neighborhoods across Alameda, is over three miles long, and serves multiple destinations including schools, commercial districts and parks. It is also a high injury corridor with several high crash intersections according to the City's Vision Zero Action Plan.
Project Description: This project will develop a transportation concept by evaluating the current uses, intersection controls and crash data. Community involvement is a priority as the roadway serves many different users. The final concept will likely be phased in over time as street sections are resurfaced and improvements are constructed with grant funding. City staff and the consultants are considering a road diet, which has the potential to reduce crashes by up to 47 percent when going from four to three lanes with a center turn lane and bikeways. City staff/consultant team also is considering roundabouts, which reduce fatal and severe injury crashes by 90 percent compared to traffic signals or all-way stops, and could be considered where space exists such as the Lincoln Avenue/Constitution Way/Eighth Street intersection or the Lincoln Avenue/Fifth Street/Marshall Way intersection.
