North Albany Traffic Calming

The North Albany Traffic Calming Project consists of installing 11 speed humps along the 400 and 500 blocks of Kains, Stannage, Cornell, Talbot, and Evelyn; installing high visibility striping and additional signage along Brighton Avenue between San Pablo Avenue and Masonic Avenue; and installing three mini circles on Brighton Avenue.  The purpose of this project is to create a calmed residential neighborhood that prioritizes pedestrian traffic and encourages drivers to slow down.

The City installed the 11 speed humps in the fall of 2015 and it is currently in the process of developing plans for the striping and the mini circles along Brighton.  Fehr and Peers was contracted for the development of construction Plans, Specifications, and estimates (PS&E) for this project.  The plan development is being funded by Measure BB, the new transportation sales tax measure approved by voters in 2014 and  administered by the Alameda Transportation Commission.
