As part of Fremont’s Vision Zero 2020, progress continues with our “20 Projects in 20 Months” program. At several priority locations throughout the city, speed lump installation is underway.
Vision Zero 2020 is the City of Fremont’s new traffic safety policy to reduce severe injuries and eliminate fatalities from traffic collisions to zero by 2020. The “20 Projects in 20 Months” program is an expedited rollout of projects designed to re-engineer streets to make them safer as listed in the Vision Zero Action Plan.
Completed speed lumps include Sundale Drive between Hilo and Robin streets, 2nd Street, Parkside Drive, and Palm Avenue. The City worked in partnership with neighborhood champions to collect signatures for the speed lumps in these neighborhoods. Speed lumps are raised asphalt structures installed on the pavement. They are 12 feet in length across the traveled way and about 3 inches in height and are designed to calm traffic in neighborhoods.
