The Fremont Boulevard Intersection Safety Improvements Project consists of constructing pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements at the intersections of Fremont Boulevard/Mowry Avenue and Fremont Boulevard/Stevenson Boulevard. The work to be done consists of: 1.Removing the existing “pork chop” traffic islands at each corner of the intersections. 2.Removing the eight existing right-turn slip lanes at each of the intersections and replacing it with buffered bike lanes. 3.Constructing new protected refuge traffic islands at each corner of the intersections. 4.Removing and replacing existing traffic signals at each intersection. 5.Modifying portions of the median islands and realigning the traffic lanes to provide a better approach driving through the intersection. 6.Removing and replacing existing traffic striping to include green buffered bike lanes.

Construction activities are anticipated to begin at the end of 2020, weather permitting.
