Three Large Construction Projects to start this summer in Fremont

Construction Project

The City of Fremont Public Works Engineering Division’s Construction section will begin three large construction projects this summer. These projects include the BART West Access Bridge in South Fremont, Central Park Large Group Picnic Area, and bicycle and pedestrian improvements for BART Way and Gateway Plaza near the Fremont BART Station.

The BART West Access Bridge project will begin construction of a bicycle and pedestrian bridge over the BART and Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks, connecting a new plaza on the west side to the Warm Springs/South Fremont BART Station. Construction is expected to last approximately two years.

Over in Central Park, the construction of a new concessions building just north of Aqua Adventure Waterpark is in the works as part of the Central Park Large Group Picnic Area project. The picnic area will include 50 picnic tables covered by shade sails, two sand volleyball courts, and barbecues. Construction is expected to last approximately eight months.

To better connect BART Way and Gateway Plaza to Downtown Fremont, bicycle and pedestrian improvements are planned. This project entails a streetscape reconstruction of BART Way and Gateway Plaza, including raised bike lanes to curb level, a protected intersection at Civic Center Drive, and wayfinding signage installation throughout. Construction is expected to last approximately eight months.

 For more information about these projects, contact the City’s Engineering division at 510-494-4700.
