The State Route 262 (Mission Boulevard) Cross Connector Project proposes to improve operations and safety along and in the vicinity of SR-262, a major east-west connector between Interstate 880 (I-880) and I-680. Early feasibility/corridor studies recommended improvements along SR-262, including improvements at the intersections, at the SR-262/I-680 and SR-262/I-880 interchanges, as well as along Auto Mall Parkway and Grimmer Road.
Alameda CTC will soon embark on preparing a project initiation document (PID) for the project, in cooperation with the City of Fremont and Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority that will culminate in the completion of a scoping document required for soliciting federal and state funding. A list of potential improvements include, but are not limited to the following:
- Improve geometry at the SR-262/I-680 Interchange.
- Provide level separation at the SR-262/Warm Springs Intersection.
- Widen SR-262 to six lanes, between the Warm Springs Intersection and I-680.
- Construct a high-occupancy vehicle (HOV)/express lane to HOV/express lane direct connector between I-880 and I-680.
- Depress the SR-262 alignment to separate local and regional traffic.

The pre-scoping studies include conceptual design for various build alternatives.
