Protected Bike Lanes Planned for Union City Blvd

Author: Bike East Bay

Date: June 26, 2018

Union City has started designing new bike lanes along Union City Blvd, from Alvarado Blvd to Alameda Creek. Union City Blvd is a key bikeway connecting the Bay Trail to the Dumbarton Bridge bike path. Show your support for the design of a protected and separate bikeway by emailing Public Works Director Thomas Ruark, at and copying our Advocacy Director Dave Campbell at


Union City Blvd was originally going to be widened to three lanes of traffic, however, Bike East Bay convinced Union City to add protected bike lanes instead. This $9 million project to improve bike and pedestrian safety is funded by voter-approved Measure BB. The design of the bike lane is expected to be complete in early 2019, and construction is expected to be completed sometime in 2020.


Talking Points:

  • Please build protected bike facilities on Union City Blvd
  • I want to bike to Delaine Eastin Elementary School and need a safe, protected bikeway on Union City Blvd
  • Union City Blvd is an important segment of Bay Trail, connecting to the Dumbarton Bridge
  • I bike to Mark Green Sports Center all the time and I am tired of dodging high-speed traffic​
