The City of Fremont’s Public Works Department began construction on two projects to improve bicycle and pedestrian safety in late 2020.

The Pedestrian Crossing Enhancement Project will improve safety for pedestrians crossing at Central/Joseph and Washington/Jerome, and will include construction of new rectangular rapid flashing beacons for increased pedestrian crossing  awareness to  motorists, upgraded lighting for improved visibility at night , bulb-outs, median refuge islands, and upgraded striping. The Bikeway Improvements Project will convert 10 miles of existing bikeways to physically-separated bike lanes in corridors across Fremont, including Paseo Padre Parkway, Walnut Avenue, Fremont Boulevard, Stevenson Boulevard, Driscoll Road, Grimmer Road, and Scott Creek Boulevard. 

These two projects are made possible through funding from Measure B, Measure BB, local transportation sales tax funds from the Alameda County Transportation Commission, and Transportation Fund for Clean Air grant funds from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD).
