Come to Meeting on Proposed Bike Lanes

Alameda’s Public Works Department will host a second community meeting to discuss the idea of remarking Shoreline Drive and Westline Drive to provide bike lanes along the waterfront.

Here are the details:
7 p.m., Thursday, June 28
Lum School’s Multi-Purpose Room
1801 Sandcreek Way at Otis Drive

In addition to installing bike lanes, city staff hope community members will share their views on reducing the number of travel lanes, putting in up to 20 bike racks, adding bus shelters on Shoreline Drive at Kitty Hawk Drive and on Grand Street at Shoreline Drive, providing a shuttle bus landing area on Westline Drive south of Shorepoint Court and adding up to two crosswalks.

At the June 28 meeting, city staff members will review comments and suggestions received during the first forum on the bike lane concept. They will also share a presentation of potential options that address the comments received from the community and lead and small group discussions.

For more information on the project, go online to a specific webpage that lists this and other projects and scroll down to Shoreline Drive/Westline Drive Proposed Bike Lane Project (at the bottom).

Those who cannot attend the June 28 working session can share written comments by mail with Gail Payne, Transportation Coordinator, at City Hall West, 950 West Mall Square, Room 110, Alameda, CA 94501 or by e-mail at gpayne@ci.alameda.ca.us.

All written comments will be part of the official public record. Any questions or concerns should be directed to Gail Payne by phone at (510) 747-7948.
