Tactical East Avenue
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.
