Body

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Grand Street Resurfacing and Safety Improvement Project is a plan to improve the condition and operations on a 0.7 mile segment of Grand Street in central City of Alameda (City). The project goals are to improve safety for all users, improve mobility for all modes, including AC Transit buses; and improve pavement condition for enhanced street operations and user experience.

The corridor is also a critical link in the City's plan to create a low stress bicycle network for the City of Alameda.
