Construction of the Dougherty Road improvements began in mid-July 2016 and was completed in August 2018. The Dougherty Road Improvement Project consisted of the following multi-modal improvements to Dougherty Road:
Two new vehicular travel lanes with landscaped median islands
New and improved bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure
New bus stops and bus pull-outs
These improvements will address traffic congestion and multi-modal circulation issues for commuters traveling Dougherty Road, including improved access to the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station.
The estimated total cost for this project is approximately $23 million. The project was funded in large part by voter-approved sales tax Measure B and Measure BB, $6,267,000 and $11,200,000 respectively, with the balance of the project being funded with local traffic impact fees.
