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 has flipped and now moves from Del Monte to Fremont 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.
In progress week of February 26
MPE hopes to finish storm drain and sewer work, weather permitting. Curb and gutter forms are being placed starting on the west end of Broadway. Concrete will not be poured until next week (due to weather). Site furnishings continue to be installed on the south side of Broadway.
Next week (week of March 5)
Continue concrete and form work for curb and gutters. Continue installation of site furniture on south side.
NOTE: Cross streets are opened as construction phasing allows. This past week, several cross streets were closed due to stormwater infrastructure installation.
