Oakland Alameda Access Project to Hold Virtual Public Hearing

Since 2015, Alameda CTC, in partnership with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), has worked with the cities of Oakland and Alameda to identify and plan for potential freeway access and local roadway improvements between Interstate 880 (I-880), Interstate 980 and the Posey and Webster Tubes connecting the two cities. Proposed features for the Oakland Alameda Access Project will improve multimodal safety and reduce conflicts between regional and local traffic, including:

  • Enhancement of bicycle and pedestrian accessibility and connectivity within the project area
  • Improvement of accessibility between I-880, State Route 260 (the Posey and Webster Tubes), City of Oakland downtown neighborhoods and the City of Alameda
  • Reduction of freeway-bound regional traffic and congestion on local roadways and in project area neighborhoods.

Recently completed technical studies for the Oakland Alameda Access Project have been completed and the project Draft Environmental Document is available for 60 days of public review and comment, from September 29 through November 30, 2020. To view the technical studies, go to the Resources tab on the project web page.

To learn more about the project, review the Draft Environmental Document and detailed instructions about the various ways in which to submit comments, please visit www.OaklandAlamedaAccessProject.com.

The virtual public hearing will be held on Tuesday, October 20, 2020, 5:30 to 7:30 pm (PT).

This event, hosted at www.OaklandAlamedaAccessProject.com, will include a presentation and question and answer session with representatives from Caltrans and Alameda CTC. You may also dial into the hearing via telephone by dialing 510.880.4195.

We look forward to your participation!
