The Hayward Transportation Division will hold an online public meeting at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22, to introduce and receive feedback on the planned completion of bicycle and pedestrian roadway improvements along Patrick Avenue in South Hayward. Add your voice and join the meeting on February 22.
The Patrick Avenue Traffic Calming Improvement Project spans .6 miles of Patrick Avenue between Tennyson and Schafer roads.
Phase 1 entailed the introduction of separated north- and south-bound bicycle lanes and preservation of parallel parking through the elimination of one lane of traffic and roadway repaving and restriping.
Phase 2 will involve green painting of bike lanes and installation of safe-hit plastic delineator posts and rapid-flashing beacons at crosswalks without traffic signals or stop signs to increase driver awareness of bicyclists and pedestrians.
The project—along with similar improvements on Huntwood Avenue between Tennyson and Industrial Parkway—demonstrates a cost-effective approach to creating complete streets that are safer for all users without sacrificing neighborhood parking and efficient traffic flow.
Prior to initiating traffic-calming and “complete streets” projects, the Transportation Division assesses accident data and conducts traffic-flow studies to understand potential impacts of lane and use changes both in the immediate vicinity and on nearby and feeder routes.
The Patrick Avenue Traffic Calming Improvement Project community meeting will be held online only on the Zoom video conferencing platform. Information on how to join the meeting will be posted here on the City of Hayward website calendar.
