Fruitvale Avenue Bikeway

This project runs from Alameda Ave at the Miller Sweeney Bridge to Park Blvd at the Leimert Bridge, connecting the City of Alameda to the Fruitvale BART Station, and the Fruitvale and Dimond Districts. The section between Alameda Ave and E 7th St forms part of the spine of the on-street Bay Trail.


This project includes:

1. Alameda Ave to E 12th St: bike lanes first installed in 2000, funded by the City of Alameda. Subsequent and pending improvements include:

2. E 12th St to Foothill Blvd

  • in 2011 the City installed decorative crosswalks and bicycle routing marking ("sharrows" encouraging bicyclists and drivers to share the lane)
  • in 2020, the City will install pedestrian and bicycle improvements, including a continuous bicycle lane on both sides of the street as described here:

3. Foothill Blvd to MacArthur Blvd: sharrows along most of the alignment, except bike lanes under I-580, were installed in 2011 as part of a larger streetscape project that also included decorative crosswalks, pedestrian wayfinding signs, and bicycle parking

  • in September 2017, bike lanes on the uphill side of the street were installed from Foothill Blvd to Harold St during a paving project
  • sharrows, indicating that bikes and vehicles share the lane, are located on the downhill side of the street where speeds between bikes and vehicles are closer

3. Alameda Ave to MacArthur Blvd: wayfinding signs were installed in 2011

4. Fruitvale Ave/Tiffin Rd/Liemert Blvd: a future project will install a connecting bike route to link the Dimond district to Park Blvd
