Alameda County

Bike Counts up 27% Last Year; 75% in Last 10 Years

Alameda County’s first ever substantive evaluation of bike count data has been released and the numbers are super-encouraging. The Alameda CTC has conducted bike counts since 2002 at locations throughout the County, in order to see countywide trends in bicycling (and walking). Here are some highlights:

Tell the Story of Your Bikeway

We are busy planning for a major Fall campaign to gain voter approval for the reauthorization of the Alameda County Transportation Sales Tax and the billion dollars it includes for new bike/ped projects. What better way to do this than to learn more about those who are enjoying bike projects already funded by this transportation sales tax–you!

description

This is the project that's rebuilding Mission Blvd (CA 238) through Hayward, funded by Alameda County sales taxes: http://www.actia2022.com/files/managed/Document/1857/MB238_Rte238_MissionFoothillJackson_Corridor_Improvement_SG_110120.pdf For bike-to-work-day, I rode home south along Mission Blvd from Foothill to Decoto. Most of Mission Blvd through Hayward now has decent shoulders, only rarely usurped for parking, so there was mostly no need to control the #2 lane on my bike. But the pavement quality in Hayward is horrible. The median with the trees is starting to look nice, though. I was just surprised that the asphalt is in such poor shape, considering how much paving has been going on through Hayward with this project. Starting around Union City, there's a wonderfully smooth, quiet, fresh paving job. I sure hope Hayward gets the same pavement quality soon. Maybe in time for BTWD 2013?
