This project provides for the widening of Dublin Boulevard from Sierra Court to Dublin Court and for the undergrounding of existing overhead utilities within the project limits. Completion of this project will widen Dublin Boulevard from four to six lanes and install bike lanes, modification of two traffic signals, installation of pedestrian-scaled lights, and enhancement of existing landscaping. Preliminary engineering and environmental approvals have been completed and the City Council has approved the use of PUC Rule 20A funds to underground existing overhead utilities within the limits of work.
The project will be constructed in two phase. On May 2, 2017, City Council awarded the first phase construction contract for the undergrounding and relocation of overhead utilities, which is funded by Rule 20A monies (shown as Other funding source below). Phase 1 construction is anticipated to be complete in Fall 2017. The second phase will be the surface improvements and road widening portion of the project. Phase 2 construction is planned to commence upon completion of the first phase.
The project is included in the Alameda Countywide Transportation Plan as a Tier 1 project (RTPID 240250). The Alameda County Transportation Commission approved an allocation of $3.0 million of Measure BB discretionary funds to the City in Fiscal Year 2016-2017 for the construction of the project.
