The Alamo Canal Trail undercrossing provides a safe, non-motorized route that bikers and pedestrians can access to travel to schools, homes, and other community locations.
The $1.23 million project connects Pleasanton’s Centennial Trail with Dublin’s Alamo Canal Trail, creating a continuous 25-mile regional trail system from Pleasanton to Concord.
Harris provided engineering and inspection services for this high-profile project. Ryan Perry, project manager acted as the full-time, on-site resident engineer and inspector and managed several subconsultants, including surveyors, a designer and a biologist.
Some of the most important benefits of the project include improved safety conditions and quality of life for the residents residing in Pleasanton and Dublin. Previously, people had to use dangerous I-580 freeway crossings when traveling between Pleasanton and Dublin.
The Alamo Canal Trail undercrossing provides a safe, non-motorized route that bikers and pedestrians can access to travel to schools, homes, and other community locations. The trail now serves as a vital transportation link to the Pleasanton BART station, bus routes, minor and major shopping areas and malls, community parks, Alameda County Fairgrounds, major corporate business offices and employment centers, the civic centers, libraries, the Iron Horse Trail, and popular downtown areas of Dublin and Pleasanton.
Along with the EBRPD, the project was supported by the City of Dublin, the City of Pleasanton, Caltrans, Bay Area Rapid Transit, Federal Highway Administration, and Zone 7 Water Agency. Funding for the project was provided by the Alameda County Transportation Commission Measure B funds, Federal Transportation Enhancement and Tiger II funds, EBRPD Measure WW funds and funds from Dublin and Pleasanton. The project was completed ahead of schedule and under budget.
