Measure B Funded Local Streets & Roads Projects
The City of Fremont Local Streets and Roads Program is supported by funds from Measure B, a voter-approved ballot measure that allocates a portion of Alameda County Sales tax revenue to fund transportation projects. Measure B funded Local Streets and Roads projects that have recently been completed, are currently ongoing, or are planned for construction or implementation include:
- Cape Seal Project – This annual project maintains our roadway network by applying a surface treatment on existing streets, thereby slowing down the natural deterioration of the roadway, restoring and protecting the pavement surface and extending the useful life of the pavement.
- Asphalt Overlay Project – This annual project repairs and resurfaces worn pavement to full serviceability. In addition, street intersections are upgraded with new curb ramps that meet current ADA requirements. Repairs are made to curbs that have been damaged by street trees.
- Niles Boulevard Street Improvement Project – Construction is complete on the Niles Boulevard Street Improvements Project. The project replaced the existing street with new concrete curb, gutter, sidewalks and driveways and new paving.
- BART Extension to Santa Clara County – The BART Extension to Santa Clara includes the Warm Springs Extension and is funded to allow City staff participation in planning, design, and construction of the extension through the City of Fremont. The extension will accommodate the increasing volume of commuters traveling through Fremont to Santa Clara.
- Dumbarton Rail Corridor - The Dumbarton Rail Corridor project will provide a new commuter rail connection across the old Dumbarton structure. Funding supports staff participation in the environmental document review and evaluation of the project's impact to the City of Fremont.
- Signal Coordination Program - Signal timings for coordination typically have a useful life of about 2 to 3 years. Their effectiveness is decreased over time as traffic volumes and patterns change. As a result, signal coordination timings need to be updated to meet the changing traffic volumes and patterns. Traffic signals that are well coordinated reduce overall vehicle stops, delays, and fuel consumption resulting in improved air quality.
- East-West Connector – A new Route 84 realignment project, part of the 1986 Measure B Expenditure Plan, is under study to provide a new link between I-880 and Mission Boulevard. The project is currently suspended due to additional funding requirements.
- Congestion Management Program – California law requires urban areas to develop and update a “Congestion Management Program” to describe the existing agency measures in place and proposed strategies for implementation to address congestion problems.
