Frequently Asked Questions


  • Coming Soon!
The Centerville Complete Streets project will improve segments of Fremont Boulevard (Alder to Eggers), Thornton Avenue and Peralta Boulevard.

The project site is located in the heart of the Centerville commercial district and within close proximity to numerous schools, businesses, AC Transit bus lines, and the Centerville Altamont Corridor Express (ACE)/Amtrak train station. Many of the area roadways are in poor condition and were developed to old state highway standards (former State Route 84) focused on vehicle traffic with wide lanes and intersections. There are gaps in the sidewalk and bicycle lanes, and an overall lack of improvements for bicycles and pedestrians. The recent relinquishment of SR 84 allows the City to have local control over this street right-of-way to repave the streets and implement “complete streets” improvements to enhance safety and mobility for all users, including drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, school children, and businesses
