Broadway Avenue is getting over $7 million in street improvements. This will result in wider sidewalks, new bicycle lanes, bulb-outs for safer pedestrian crossing, a signal light at Alhambra, and one less traffic lane in each direction. Broadway on-street parking will remain available. Traffic is expected to flow smoother due to the signal light. Construction began with tree work in January 2017 and completion is anticipated late Spring 2018.
The project started at the Fremont end of Broadway, moving towards Del Monte. Broadway is now a one-way street (temporarily) through the end of the project. Traffic will move from Fremont West toward Del Monte during the current phase of construction. This allows for parking on one lane Please be patient during the project and drive carefully. Construction is expected to be complete late Spring 2018.
COMPLETED Week of October 23.
MPE prepared subgrade for
sidewalk and curb and gutter east of Calaveras Street. In addition, a manhole at the Hillsdale
intersection was lowered and modified to allow for construction of an
additional drainage “v-gutter” across Hillsdale to capture storm water before
the intersection with West Broadway. The
concrete subcontractor, Aparicio Concrete placed forms for curb and gutter
between Hillsdale and Calaveras Streets.
In addition, concrete curb and gutter was poured from the west end of
the project to midway between Hillsdale and Alhambra Streets, for a total of 69
cubic yards. The work also included pouring the “v-gutter” and two drainage
spandrels at Hillsdale St.
