Project would add 8-mile commuting and recreational path
Fremont, Calif.- The City of Fremont’s Public Works Department is working on the preliminary design and environmental study of a new regional trail that would connect from the Dumbarton Bridge to Quarry Lakes Regional Recreation Area, providing a new east-west bicycling and walking facility for Transbay commuting and for recreational use.
The proposed trail would extend approximately 8 miles along the Dumbarton/Decoto corridor and consist of multi-use pathways, separated bike lanes, and wide sidewalks. The trail would connect to regional open spaces, transit hubs, and other regional trails including the Bay Trail and Alameda Creek Trail.
The current project phase is funded by an Alameda CTC Measure BB grant and will be completed by 2022, after which the City will pursue additional grants to design and construct the various trail segments.
The project team has developed a short animation that provides more detail on the proposed alignment and the destinations that the trail will connect to, as well as a short survey in which community members can provide comments on the trail and sign up to receive project updates.
