Castro Valley Boulevard Streetscape Project


Overview

Creating a Pedestrian "Main Street" for the Castro Valley Community

To create a safe, comfortable and attractive pedestrian main street for downtown Castro Valley, a series of street improvements totaling over $9M are currently being implemented for Castro Valley Boulevard.

These improvements intend to:

  • Calm the traffic environment by reconfiguring traffic lanes and providing on-street parking with shared bicycle access while still maintaining adequate traffic capacity on the Boulevard.
  • Create a beautiful and inviting pedestrian environment that will encourage the community to access Castro Valley Boulevard for shopping, dining and entertainment by providing widened sidewalks with ample seating areas, a canopy of street trees and planter beds, landscaped bulb-outs, street furnishings and gateway markers.

Construction is along Castro Valley Boulevard between Redwood Road and San Miguel Avenue and includes design and construction of the following elements:

  • Widened sidewalks and bulb-outs
  • Street tree planting and tree grates
  • Improved medians with landscaping
  • Decorative pavers in bulb-outs and sidewalk planting strips
  • Street furnishings including newsracks, benches, bollards and trash cans
  • Decorative streetlights
  • Gateway markers
  • Banners
  • Public Art
