Alameda County Transportation Forum

I figured I’d put this in its own post because I have the press release info pasted after the jump. I’m already committed to another Thursday evening meeting, but Review will be staffing this … The East Bay Greenway path sounds interesting:

WHO:            Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) formerly known as the Alameda County Transportation Improvement Authority (ACTIA)

WHAT:          Central County (i.e., Hayward, San Leandro) Transportation Forum

WHEN:         Thursday, January 20, 2011

TIME:            6:30PM – 8:30PM

WHERE:        Hayward City Hall, 777 B Street, Hayward, CA 94541 


Alameda CTC and Local Transportation Plans: Meet Alameda County’s newly formed countywide transportation agency.  Hear about agency’s innovative approaches to transportation planning and funding.

East Bay Greenway: This project proposes to build a 12-mile walking and biking path under the elevated BART tracks between Oakland and Hayward in Alameda County.  The vision is to provide a safe, landscaped, continuous corridor that offers car-free access to transit, schools, shopping, and community resources.

Senior Travel Training: Alameda County is at the cutting edge of preparing for the coming “boom” in the senior-aged population, with numbers expected to more than double in the next twenty years.

I-880 Corridor Improvements: Many projects are underway to improve the efficiency of the I-880 Corridor.  This presentation will cover improvements through Central Alameda County.

Route 238 Improvements: Construction began this year to make significant improvements through Hayward. Hear about construction activities and plans for the project’s final implementation.

Lewelling/East Lewelling Project: The first of a two-phase project to widen East Lewelling Blvd. to East 14th Street, and to move utilities underground in the project area. Widens Lewelling between Hesperian Blvd. and Meekland Ave. and includes streetscape improvements.
