The City of Fremont plans to begin the Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor Project in early 2020 to manage congestion and improve safety for all modes of travelers. The project will cover the 10-mile stretch of Fremont Boulevard between Paseo Padre Parkway and Cushing Parkway.
A major component of the project is traffic signal modernization, which was identified by the community as a top priority in the City's newly adopted Mobility Action Plan. Smart sensors will help streamline traffic flow, ensure adequate intersection crossing times, and prioritize signals for transit and emergency vehicles.
These improvements will enhance safety for pedestrians, bicycles, and drivers, supporting Fremont's Vision Zero initiative to eliminate traffic fatalities. The project also supports the City's Climate Action Plan by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Construction is anticipated to begin early next year. Funding for the work is granted by Measure BB, approved by Alameda County voters in 2014, and administered by the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
