The project involves the reconstruction of damaged curbs, sidewalks, and driveway approaches. New curb ramps shall also be installed at select street intersections. Where necessary for the installation of new concrete, trees shall either be root pruned or replaced entirely.
The concrete repairs include 282 locations and focuses on a number of priorities. They include street segments where planned pavement maintenance work requires concrete repairs, locations where tree roots have also damaged the pavement within bike lanes, downtown area locations with relatively high pedestrian activity, street segments where concrete damage is highly concentrated, sidewalks connecting to bridges maintained by the City, and individual citywide locations where damage is especially severe.
The curb ramps installations include 380 ramps at 174 intersections located citywide.
The City has inspected all of the trees and sidewalks affected by the project. A list of trees that are considered for removal and replacement is available in the link below under “Project Details.” An arborist shall make the final decision on tree replacement during construction. Where possible, trees shall be 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) for more information about the voter approved funds.
