Mission Boulevard

Project Overview

The Mission Boulevard Corridor Improvement Project extends from Highway 238 to Rose Street (Hayward City Limit) in the Cherryland community of Unincorporated Alameda County.

In the first phase of this corridor improvement project, overhead utilities will be relocated underground within the project limits.  In the second phase of the project, streetscape and multimodal transportation improvements will be installed to revitalize the corridor. The overall project includes undergrounding of overhead wires, removal of utility poles and overhead wires, improving pedestrian space, and enhancing ADA accessibility. The project also includes enhancing crosswalks, improving transit stops, new street lighting, improvements to storm water quality, planting new street trees for shade and comfort, and constructing new raised separated bikeways.

When completed, motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, transit riders, and residents within the Cherryland community will enjoy a revitalized, safe and accessible commercial corridor.
