Improving Trail Accessibility for All Users
The City of Dublin is continuously working to improve the accessibility of bikeways trails and lanes available to its residents. Below is a short description of the projects taking place in the community.
San Ramon Road Trail Improvements
The San Ramon Bicycle and Pedestrian Trail in West Dublin is undergoing phased improvements that provide a smoother, safer experience for residents. Most recently, these improvements have included crosswalk striping and signage improvements along with new asphalt.
The trail will soon be a little brighter as the City completes 43 LED bulb retrofits in the light poles along the trail. These retrofits will improve visibility at night as well as energy efficiency, saving Dublin a projected $22,000 in electricity over the next decade. The existing light poles will also get new foundations and a fresh coat of paint as part of the retrofit. The project is set for completion in Fall 2021.
Iron Horse Trail Crosswalk Safety Improvements
Crossing the busy Dougherty Road & Scarlett Drive intersection along Iron Horse Trail recently became a little safer thanks to traffic signal improvements, ADA ramp upgrades, striping, and signage. Much of trail also benefited from new asphalt.
Alamo Creek Trail Improvements
Traversing Alamo Creek Trail recently got even better with an improved bike/pedestrian crosswalk at Amador Valley Boulevard and Wildwood Drive, including new rapid flashing beacons, striping, signage, new asphalt, and a bulb out to ensure safer street crossing. New asphalt and repair work was funded in part by Measure B/BB funds, in partnership with the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
Downtown Bike Lane Improvements
The City of Dublin’s latest street resurfacing project added buffered bike lanes on Regional Street and Amador Valley Boulevard in Downtown Dublin. The newly added buffered bike lanes on Regional Street will connect the future bike lanes on St. Patrick Way extension to businesses on Regional Street and then to San Ramon Road. This will also provide alternate safe, low-stress bike lane connections to the current shared Class III bicycle route along Dublin Boulevard. The new buffered bike lanes also provide a north-south connection to other safe, low-stress bike lanes on Amador Valley Boulevard and St. Patrick Way. These safer, more connected bike routes were made possible by Measure B/BB and SB-1 funds, in partnership with the Alameda County Transportation Commission and the California Transportation Commission.
Village Parkway Buffered Bike Lanes
As part of the City's pavement maintenance program, Village Parkway was re-striped in 2016 with the first buffered bike lanes in the City of Dublin. Three to five feet of buffer space now exists to separate the vehicle lane from the bike lane to increase the safety and comfort level for both vehicles and bicyclists. Additionally, new green pavement striping was added in "conflict zone" areas to alert road users of potential crossover maneuvers by other road users.
Amador Valley Boulevard Buffered Bike Lanes
In coordination with Dublin San Ramon Services District's (DSRSD) recycled water main installation, the south side of Amador Valley Parkway from San Ramon Road to Village Parkway was re-striped with buffered bike lanes in 2016. Three to five feet of buffer space separates vehicle and bicycle lanes to increase the safety and comfort level for both vehicles and bicyclists. New green pavement striping was added in the "conflict zone" at the intersection with Village Parkway to alert road users of potential crossover maneuvers by other road users. Buffered bike lanes on the north side of Amador Valley Boulevard are planned in the near future.
