In March and April 2022, the Oakland Department of Transportation met with businesses and residents to discuss the impacts of the recently completed Fruitvale Avenue Bike and Pedestrian Safety Project. Staff conducted a survey and storefront outreach to find solutions to the parking and loading needs of residents and merchants along Fruitvale Avenue. As a result of these conversations, the City is currently redesigning the project to restore the majority of on-street parking spaces removed by the initial Project and to provide two new ADA parking spaces.

Background

The Fruitvale Avenue Project was awarded funded by the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) in 2016. Which purpose is to achieve a significant reduction in traffic fatalities and serious injuries on all public roads and requires a data-driven, strategic approach to improving safety on all public roads. The bike and pedestrian safety improvements on Fruitvale Avenue include:

  • Continuous bike lanes on Fruitvale
  • High visibility crosswalk striping
  • Flashing lights at three intersections
  • new left turn lanes at the intersection of Fruitvale Avenue and Foothill Boulevard

Construction of the project was completed in December 2021.
