East 14th Street/Mission Boulevard and Fremont Boulevard Multimodal Corridor

The East 14th Street/Mission Boulevard and Fremont Boulevard Corridor is a critical interjurisdictional arterial corridor that traverses five jurisdictions in Central and Southern Alameda County (unincorporated Alameda County and the cities of San Leandro, Hayward, Union City and Fremont). It provides key north-south connections throughout the inner East Bay paralleling Interstate 880 (I-880), while connecting with two major east-west bay crossing bridges (San Mateo and Dumbarton bridges) and major commute corridors to the Tri-Valley, including Niles Canyon (State Route 84) and Sunol Grade (Interstate 680). It is one of a limited number of north-south travel options in the central part of Alameda County serving local, regional and interregional trips. Significant land development and growth is occurring and planned for all along this corridor. This project will build off of existing planning and improvement efforts, conduct a detailed analysis of multimodal mobility within the corridor, and identify specific implementable short-, medium- and long-term improvements to advance them to project delivery.

Project Study Area At-a-Glance

  • Five local jurisdictions: City of San Leandro, unincorporated Alameda County, and the cities of Hayward, Union City and Fremont
  • The corridor provides robust transit travel options with seven transit providers, and public and private shuttles. Public transit include three bus transit providers, seven BART stations, two Capitol Corridor stations and one ACE station (shared with Amtrak)
  • 314,000 residents and 90,000 employees along its alignment
  • 17,000-36,000 vehicles per day
  • Two-thirds of the corridor have bike lanes
  • Fourteen Priority Development Areas

Project Purpose and Need

  • To accommodate increased travel demand from ongoing development activity and planned long-term growth
  • To improve travel choices for shorter distance trips that may occur through walking, biking and transit
  • To improve first and last mile connections to BART
  • To reduce pedestrian and bicyclist collisions
  • To address existing traffic congestion and long-term traffic growth

Project Goals

  • Support planned long term growth and economic development. Address the range of mobility needs for Study Area residents, businesses, workers and visitors
  • Increase the share of non-auto trips
  • Improve connectivity between transportation modes and services
  • Provide a safe and welcoming environment for pedestrians, bicyclists and transit users
  • Optimize the throughput of existing infrastructure
  • Provide flexibility for future changes in transportation technology, including connected vehicles
