Tactical East Avenue

The Tactical East Avenue installation has been RESCHEDULED to April 10-14 due to weather! Please see below to view the project plans and sign up to volunteer.

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! Pilot pedestrian safety improvements will be installed from Maple Street to Hillcrest Avenue from April 10-14, 2023. Design elements like curb extensions, painted median refuges, and high visibility crosswalks will be evaluated for six months to inform a future, permanent design of East Avenue.


To help the project team build a safer East Avenue, sign up to volunteer here.

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. 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.

Upcoming Events

Tactical East Avenue Build Week

Save the Date! - April 10-14, 2023

From March 13-17, 2023, the City of Livermore, Street Plans, and volunteers will implement pilot pedestrian intersection improvements as a part of Tactical East Avenue, Phase II of the East Avenue Corridor Study. A grand opening event to celebrate the improvements will be held at East Avenue Middle School from 4pm-6pm on Friday, April 14th. 


Improvements like curb extensions, pedestrian refuge medians, and high visibility crosswalks will be evaluated for six months at the intersections of Maple St, 7th St, Dolores St, Jensen St, Estates St, and Hillcrest Ave. During the evaluation period, the City will monitor the project, collect data, and solicit public feedback to determine how the project is functioning.


Part of what makes this process fun is working with community volunteers to build the project! Volunteers will play a pivotal role in building the safety improvements, alongside the City team.  

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!
