Improving Trail Accessibility for All Users
The City of Dublin is continuously working to improve the accessibility of bikeways trails and lanes available to its residents. Below is a short description of the projects taking place in the community.
Golden Gate Drive Improvements
The Downtown Transit District Streetscape Project was completed in June 2013. The completion of this project enhanced pedestrian and bicycle access on Golden Gate Drive from Dublin Boulevard to the West Dublin BART Station and made the Downtown Transit District Entryway more aesthetically pleasing, as envisioned in the Downtown Dublin Specific Plan.

Alamo Canal Trail/ I-580 Undercrossing Project
This project constructed a trail underneath I-580 that connects the Alamo Canal Trail north of the freeway (adjacent to the City Library) with the Pleasanton Centennial Trail south of the freeway to create a regional trail. The project began in April 2012; its completion was celebrated at a ribbon-cutting ceremony in October 2012. The pictures depict the completed trail undercrossing.
Village Parkway Buffered Bike Lanes
As part of the City's pavement maintenance program, Village Parkway was re-striped with the first buffered bike lanes in the City of Dublin. Three to five feet of buffer space now exists to separate the vehicle lane from the bike lane to increase the safety and comfort level for both vehicles and bicyclists. Additionally, new green pavement striping was added in "conflict zone" areas to alert road users of potential crossover maneuvers by other road users.
Amador Valley Boulevard Buffered Bike Lanes
In coordination with Dublin San Ramon Services District's (DSRSD) recycled water main installation, the south side of Amador Valley Parkway from San Ramon Road to Village Parkway was re-striped with buffered bike lanes. Three to five feet of buffer space separates vehicle and bicycle lanes to increase the safety and comfort level for both vehicles and bicyclists. New green pavement striping was added in the "conflict zone" at the intersection with Village Parkway to alert road users of potential crossover maneuvers by other road users. Buffered bike lanes on the north side of Amador Valley Boulevard are planned in the near future.
