The Alameda County Public Works Agency is responsible for the planning, design and construction of public transportation infrastructure including streets and roads, traffic signals, sidewalks and bike lanes throughout the unincorporated Alameda County. The Agency manages the Bicycle and Pedestrian and Safe Route to School Programs, as well as the Crossing Guard and the Neighborhood Traffic Calming Programs that are intended to provide safe, accessible and multi-modal transportation infrastructure. Please see the links below to find information about programs and services offered by ACPWA.
Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Improvement Program
The Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Improvement Program is designed to identify and implement projects and programs that enhance cyclists and pedestrians’ safety, and to provide accessibility for cyclists and pedestrians to all destinations that are served by public roads, trails, and public transit. The program promotes accessibility and mobility for all persons including those with special needs such as the elderly and disabled.
Transportation Infrastructure Safety Program
The Transportation Infrastructure Safety Program is designed to identify and implement projects and programs that improve the operational safety of the transportation infrastructure network within the unincorporated areas of Alameda County.
Pavement Management Program
The Pavement Management Program is designed to identify projects that cost effectively maintain the pavement of local street and roads. The primary focus of the program is to promote preventive maintenance treatments such as overlays, crack sealing, slurry seals, micro-seals and chip seals in order to prolong the life span of pavement surfaces. Maintenance strategies advanced through this program will lead to substantial savings, by avoiding the cost of reconstructing a street that could exceed ten times the cost of preventative maintenance.
Major Maintenance Program
The Major Maintenance Program is designed to identify projects that rehabilitate transportation infrastructure that cannot be repaired through routine maintenance efforts. Generally, this program is intended to identify projects that focus on replacement of failed or failing infrastructure components that are necessary to return a facility to its intended use, to prevent further damage, or to make it compliant with changes in laws, regulations, codes, or standards. Major emergencies such as severe rain events could also create the immediate need to perform major rehabilitation and reconstruction of infrastructure.
Major Infrastructure Improvement Program
The Major Infrastructure Improvement Program is designed to identify large scale Capital improvements either at a specific location or along a transportation corridor. Generally, this program is intended to identify projects that focus on providing transportation facilities with a focus on capacity enhancement, community beautification, safety, regional transportation, utility undergrounding, and multimodal facilities.
