Tactical East Avenue

Project Overview

Over the past couple years, the City of Livermore conducted a Corridor Study on East Avenue to enhance mobility and safety for all modes of transportation. The study focused on East Avenue between S. Livermore Avenue and S. Vasco Road, a segment identified as a priority corridor in the Livermore Active Transportation Plan. Phase I of this study involved extensive public outreach, analyzed existing conditions, and prepared multiple design alternatives for the corridor. 

 

Phase II of the East Avenue Corridor Study is now under way with Tactical East Avenue, a six-month pilot project that will test elements of the design alternatives produced in Phase I to arrive at a real-world tested solution for the corridor! This method is derived from Tactical Urbanism, a method of city-building that uses low-cost, temporary materials to create ‘renderings in real-time’ of proposed permanent improvements.

Tactical improvements to East Avenue as a part of the pilot project could include curb extensions, bike lanes, lane re-configuration, and traffic calming interventions to make the corridor work better for all. These projects do not involve changes to the existing curbs, or excavation. All project elements are installed within the existing roadway and striping!

 

Tactical East Avenue will be an opportunity for the City of Livermore and the community to experience proposed and/or new changes to the street before large investments are made that will impact the corridor for years to come.

Past Events

Tactical East Avenue Design Week

September 19-22, 2022

The City of Livermore and consultant Street Plans facilitated multiple days of planning and design activities to design intersection safety pilot projects at six intersections on East Avenue between Maple Street and Hillcrest Avenue.
 

Design Week consisted of the following activities:

  • A kick-off workshop for the community to provide feedback on priority intersections and types of improvements.

  • Stakeholder meetings with businesses and organizations along the corridor, including both schools and multiple City departments.

  • A drop-in design studio for community members to have informal conversations with the project team. 

  • A final "pin-up", where the community indicated which of the final designs and locations they wanted to see included in the pilot project.

If you weren't able to attend a Design Week event, view the event materials and take the Intersection Preference Survey!

What improvements should we test?

The Tactical East Avenue pilot project is a part of an ongoing planning and design process for the East Avenue corridor, and will begin with pedestrian improvements. The pilot project is temporary, and will be evaluated for its performance and inclusion in future, permanent changes to the street.

Take the survey to tell us what pedestrian improvements you think we should test!
