The project involves the reconstruction of damaged curbs, sidewalks, and driveway approaches. New curb ramps will also be installed at some street intersections. Where necessary for the installation of new concrete, trees will either be root pruned or replaced.
Location & Priorities
The concrete repairs address 302 locations and include:
street segments where planned pavement maintenance work requires concrete repairs
locations where tree roots have damaged the asphalt pavement where there is bicycle traffic
downtown area locations with relatively high pedestrian activity
street segments where concrete damage is highly concentrated
individual citywide locations where damage is especially severe
The curb ramps installations include 324 ramps at 158 locations throughout the City.
Work on this project has been ongoing since 2019 and will continue into 2021.
The City has inspected all of the trees and sidewalks affected by the project. See a list of trees that are to be removed and replaced. An arborist will make the final decision on tree replacement during construction. Where possible, trees have been preserved rather than replaced.
This project is funded by gas taxes, Measure F, and Measures B and BB funds for local streets and roads. Visit Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC) and SB1 for more information about the voter-approved funds.
