This project provides for the widening of Dougherty Road (Sierra Lane to the North City Limit) from four to six lanes including construction of bike lanes, modification of traffic signals, raised landscaped median and installation of additional street and pedestrian lighting. Detailed design has been completed, the environmental document (Mitigated Negative Declaration) was approved in February 2013, and the acquisition of environmental permits and right-of-way was completed in early 2016. A combination of Measure B/BB, Congestion Management Agency Transportation Improvement Program, Eastern Dublin Traffic Impact Fee Category 3, Dougherty Valley Traffic Impact Fee and project specific mitigation funds are currently programmed for the project. Construction of the roadway improvement project began in the summer of 2016.
Construction of the Dougherty Road Improvements began in mid-July 2016 and are scheduled to run through Fall 2017. The Dougherty Road Improvement Project consists of the following multi-modal improvements to Dougherty Road:
These improvements will address traffic congestion and multi-modal circulation issues for commuters traveling Dougherty Road, including improved access to the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.
The estimated total cost for this project is approximately $23 million. The project is being funded in large part by voter-approved sales tax Measure B and Measure BB, $6,267,000 and $11,200,000 respectively, with the balance of the project being funded with local traffic impact fees.
