Backbone infrastructure in Alameda Point’s Adaptive Reuse Area (Reuse Area) will be replaced with funding from the sale of buildings in the Reuse Area. Projects will be implemented through the City’s Capital Improvement Program.
Five properties have sold to date, generating $31 million in revenue. On March 15, 2022 City Council awarded a construction contract to Andrew M. Jordan, Inc. DBA A&B Construction.
This first project will construct new EBMUD water facilities in Phase 1 Water Only Improvements (dashed purple lines), Phase 1 All Backbone Improvements (blue shaded streets) and Water Only Improvements in Phase 2 (pink shaded streets), as shown below:
All backbone infrastructure includes new sewer, storm, joint trench, street lighting, landscaping and new complete streets with 100% stormwater capture and bike, pedestrian and transit facilities.
Construction is underway and is expected through late summer of 2024. Although we will work to minimize construction impacts, there will be planned road closures, detours and noise. The City and A&B’s construction team have done extensive outreach and coordination with the existing businesses directly impacted by the construction.
Planned Road Closures:
• Saratoga, between W Midway and W Tower, closed May 23 - December 13.
• W tower, between Saratoga and Pan Am Way, June 6 - December 13
• Pan Am Way, between W Midway and W Tower, spring 2023 – dates TBD
• W Midway, between Saratoga and Pan Amy, spring 2023 – dates TBD
An extensive pedestrian and traffic control plan will be maintained for the durations.
Access to the Bladium will be off of Pan Am Way, just south of W Tower (near the Alameda Naval Air Station Museum). Signage is in place.
