Central Avenue Project Configuration

The city of Alameda Public Works department has a grant to develop a concept proposal to improve Central Avenue. The planned improvements include reducing the number of traffic lanes to make room for a bikeway and enhance pedestrian access.

Possible Configurations

Though there are many possibilities, current plans for the project do not include configuring Central Avenue like Shoreline in the vicinity of Crown Harbor. For the configurations below, Crown Drive connects with Central Avenue from the right side.

The preferred option for the majority of the study area, including by Crown Harbor, is Class II bike lanes similar to Broadway between Otis Drive and Central Avenue. Broadway also is Caltrans right-of-way — State Route 61 — as well as a truck route and a bus route. Your Crown Harbor project web page shows this approach as Option A — so it is not a cycle track similar to the Shoreline bikeway.

To view the preferred options for the entire study area, please refer to the Central Avenue project web page under the "Town Hall" tab and the June 4, 2015 meeting: [See Segment 4 for Crown Drive to McKay Street.]

Thank you for your input.
