In 2015, the City of Albany finalized the Plans, Specifications, and Estimates for the installation of the 14 Striping and Signage Bicycle Projects proposed in the ATP. Please click here to see the plans. The bicycle striping and signage projects will be implemented in the Spring of 2017.
In December 2015, the City was awarded a grant from the Technical Assistance Program of the Alameda County Transportation Commission (Alameda CTC) for community outreach and for development of conceptual plans for bicycle facilities along Kains Avenue and Adams Avenue. The Kains and Adams bike facilities would provide an alternative to installing bike facilities along San Pablo Avenue. Alameda CTC funds this program through the voter-approved sales tax for transportation purposes, Measure B and Vehicle Registration Fee (VRF) funds. The City plans to start this project in the winter of 2016.
