Peralta Boulevard and Mowry Avenue Complete Streets
The Peralta Boulevard and Mowry Avenue Complete Streets project will improve segments of former State Route (SR) 84, including Peralta Boulevard (from Sequoia Road) and Mowry Avenue, relinquished from the State Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to the City of Fremont. In 2006, the City entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Caltrans that stated the State’s intent to relinquish SR 84 and the City’s intent to accept the relinquished route to allow the City to control access, design, and maintenance of these streets. In September 2018, Governor Jerry Brown approved legislation to move forward with the relinquishment.
Being under Caltrans’ jurisdiction for many years, these roadways are in poor condition and were developed to old state highway standards focused on vehicle traffic with wide lanes and curb radii. There are large gaps in the sidewalk and bicycle lanes, and an overall lack of improvements for bicycles and pedestrians. This 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.
The project site is Phase II of the Complete Streets project on former SR84. Phase I (Centerville Complete Streets project along Thornton Avenue, Fremont Boulevard and a portion of Peralta Boulevard) is currently in preliminary design and environmental clearance.
SCOPE OF WORK
The proposed scope of work is to complete preliminary engineering design; secure environmental clearance for the project, and final design.
The elements of the project are as follows:
- Pavement Rehabilitation of the existing street sections
- Complete Streets Upgrade
The pavement rehabilitation project element is being funded by State of Good Repair funds. The City is seeking grant funding for the design and construction of the complete streets element.
