A reliable infrastructure system is vital to the safety and economic well-being of the county. The Public Works Agency plays an important role by planning, promoting, designing, funding, and constructing transportation facilities for unincorporated Alameda County. To accomplish this, our engineers plan and design transportation capital improvement and traffic projects in the unincorporated areas of Alameda County. Projects include the design and construction of new roadways as well as improvements to existing roadways, such as pavement rehabilitation, congestion management, traffic safety, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, and bridge rehabilitation and retrofit.
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM
The Transportation Capital Improvement Program (TCIP) includes planning and engineering to maximize mobility and safety for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists. Typical projects include building and repairing roadways, adding traffic lanes, replacing failing retaining walls, and making slide repairs and seismic upgrades. Other services include implementing efficient traffic control measures (like roundabouts, raised intersections, speed humps/speed bumps, turn lanes, traffic signals, lighting, and signage); maintaining and improving roadway pavement; and constructing pedestrian sidewalks, bicycle lanes, and multi-use pathways.
