Central Avenue Plan Meeting Slated Dec. 5


The City of Alameda has announced a community workshop to comment on the safety improvement alternatives for Central Avenue near Webster Street for Wednesday, Dec. 5, 6:30 p.m. in City Council Chambers, at Alameda City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave. 

Potential changes include bike lanes, a two-way bikeway on the south side of Central Avenue for connection to Encinal High and Paden Elementary schools or simply to installing “sharrow” bike pavement markings in the Webster Street area of Central Avenue. A “no-change” alternative also is included. A study of these options will take place in 2019.

The final Central Avenue concept for the Webster Street area is yet to be determined and will be based on all community input gathered from the workshops, online surveys and written correspondence, with approval expected in 2019 after a comprehensive analysis.

The entire Central Avenue project stretches 1.7 miles between the intersections of Main Street and Pacific Avenue and Sherman Street and Encinal Avenue, and focuses on making the street safer for all users. 

Residents intested in this project are invited to receive email updates, including alerts for future online surveys, by sending an email to gpayne@alamedaca.gov. To follow the project online visit
