tabber2Overview The City has funding to develop a concept of potential improvements for Clement Avenue between Grand Street and Broadway. Potential Bikeway: This one-mile segment of Clement Avenue between Grand Street and Broadway was identified in the Cross Alameda Trail Feasibility Study as a short-term alternative to the San Francisco Bay Trail shoreline path, as the current uses of the adjacent shoreline properties are not expected to change in the foreseeable future. This bikeway will provide a direct, commuter-oriented route linking central Alameda to the east end and beyond to downtown Oakland and the Fruitvale BART station. Truck/Bus Route: The City also has identified Clement Avenue as a truck route and a potential bus transit corridor. Railroad Tracks: The abandoned railroad tracks in the street also will be considered for removal as part of this Northern Waterfront priority development area project. Please direct questions or concerns to Gail Payne, Transportation Coordinator, by phone at 510-747-7948 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This complete street corridor concept plan is funded by the Alameda County Transportation Commission and Measure B - Alameda County's transportation sales tax. Details Clement Avenue is 48 feet wide with two motor vehicle travel lanes and on-street parking. Improvement concepts along this corridor will be developed with community input.
