Dougherty Road Improvements Project

In January 2019, the City of Dublin completed the Dougherty Road Improvements Project, a highly anticipated infrastructure expansion that had been in the works since the City’s 1985 General Plan adoption. The corridor is one of Dublin’s most highly utilized roads, accommodating more than 32,000 vehicle trips per day.

The project provided for the widening of Dougherty Road from four lanes to six between Sierra Lane and the northern City limits, along with corresponding traffic signal modifications. Corridor improvements also included the following:

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 4
  5. 5
  6. 6
  7. 7
  • Installation of new Class II bike lanes
  • 1.4 miles of bike/pedestrian pathway improvements
  • Landscaped median islands
  • Storm drainage improvements
  • New curbs, gutters, sidewalks and curb ramps
  • Three new illuminated bus stops
  • Bioretention areas and landscaping along the easterly side of the roadway
  • A complete asphalt overlay with new pavement markings between Dublin Boulevard and the northern City limit
  • An expansion of the City’s fiber optic network to the five intersections to facilitate implementation of an adaptive traffic signal timing system, reducing travel times on Dougherty Road

These improvements to Dougherty Road have reduced roadway congestion and improved BART station accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists. The project was made possible in large part by Measure B and Measure BB grants totaling nearly $17.5 million from the Alameda County Transportation Commission.
