Mission Creek Trail - Palm Ave to Mission Blvd

General Project Description

Construction of a trail along Mission Creek between Palm Avenue and Mission Boulevard was identified in the General Plan and the 2016 Pedestrian Master Plan as an important trail gap closure to supplement the City of Fremont’s bicycle and pedestrian system.  Completion of this path would enhance access to Central Park for the Mission San Jose community.  It would also complete the link between Central Park, Gomes Park, Mission San Jose Park and Mission San Jose High School.  

As part of the Safe Routes to School program, there is also a need for safer walking and biking access for students to Mission San Jose High School, Hopkins Junior High and Chadbourne Elementary for residents south of Palm Avenue.   A portion of this trail, between Via San Luis Rey and Mission Boulevard, was completed as part of a residential development in 2016. This project would extend the current multi-use path by 2,200 feet to Palm Avenue along the existing Alameda County Flood Control channel.

The project will:

1.    Install Class I trail on 2200 feet of Mission Creek between Palm Avenue and Mission Boulevard;
2.    Install a bicycle and pedestrian bridge across Mission Creek for the neighborhoods south of Mission Creek;
3.    Install bulb outs and crosswalks at the Palm Avenue Terminus for safer access to the existing trail north of Palm
         Avenue;
4.    Provide new signing and striping and pavement markings.
