Construction has begun on the first phase of the $1 billion mixed-use, transit-oriented waterfront development at the gateway to Alameda Point called Site A. Located in the middle of Alameda Point, Site A effectively splits the Point in half. 

 

In what was predicted to be the last major rainstorm of the season last Thursday night wind gusts that reached 80 mph in some parts of the Bay Area caused a five-story tree to become wedged between two Alameda homes. Fairfield’s Arbor Unlimited needed to coordinate the efforts of three cranes in order to extract the tree without further damaging the Gold Coast homes at the intersection of Grand Street and San Jose Avenue.

Construction began Monday on the Cross Alameda Trail (CAT) between Main Street and Constitution Way, along Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway (RAMP) and Atlantic Avenue. This long-awaited 0.9-mile segment of the planned four-mile cross-town bicycling and walking corridor is expected to be built by September 2019. 

 

The city’s annual street repair and resurfacing project will begin in the upcoming days and is estimated to be completed by late October. Construction will take place Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. During construction, motorists will experience minor disruptions in traffic, temporary loss of parking spaces, temporary restricted street access as well as an increase in noise and dust levels. 

 

The Alameda Free Library, in collaboration with Alameda Fire Department, Alameda Police Department, Alameda Public Works Department and Alameda Municipal Power, invites families to spend an afternoon exploring some of the city’s big trucks. The Big Truck Bonanza is slated for Saturday, April 8, from noon to 3 p.m. in the City Hall parking lot, located on Oak Street, between Santa Clara and Lincoln avenues.
