Jun 19, 2018 at 1:32pm
RM3 will provide Alameda County with more than $1 billion in transportation improvements. This is a critical infusion of funds that will leverage local transportation sales tax measures to help Alameda CTC deliver projects early.
RM3 funds important projects in Alameda County to support better goods movement and economic development, highway and express lane improvements, major transit investments in operations and capital projects, active transportation projects such as the East Bay Greenway Project, multimodal investments including San Pablo Avenue and East 14th & Mission in Fremont, and congestion relief projects in the County. Additionally, nearly 50 percent of the transit services funded with RM3 operating assistance directly benefit Alameda County. The entire RM3 Expenditure Plan list can be found here.
Alameda CTC is working to close the gap in the I-680 Express Lane network in Alameda County, and has initiated planning for the extension of the I-680 Express Lanes from SR-84 to Alcosta Boulevard. It is also planning the I-680/SR-84 Interchange to relieve congestion along the Dumbarton Bridge Corridor. RM3 will help close critical funding gaps on these projects as well as supporting the countywide Safe Routes to Schools program. Alameda CTC will also look to RM3 for support to continue the popular Student Transit Pass Pilot Program.
