The Traffic Engineering Division strives to increase the efficiency and safety of the City’s transportation network. This division of the Community Development Department is responsible for:
I-680/Sunol Boulevard Interchange Project – Conceptual design and preliminary engineering have begun for modifications to the 1-680/Sunol Boulevard Interchange. The goals of this project are to provide congestion relief, operational safety improvements, and improve bicycle facilities through the interchange. The City will be the lead agency and will partner with the California State Department of Transportation during project development. Currently, the City is developing a project report which is a requirement that develops conceptual designs and a high level traffic engineering and environmental analysis.
New Illuminated Street Name Signs – Installation of 56 LED Illuminated Street Name Signs (ISNS) was completed earlier this year as part of the five-year program to replace or install energy efficient LED ISNS at all traffic signals. The installation of the 56 signs completed year three of this five year program. An additional 55 LED ISNS will be installed in early 2019 (year 4 of the program)
Traffic Signal Operations Grant - The City of Pleasanton was awarded a $290,000 grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) to deploy Automated Traffic Signal Performance Measures equipment. The grant – Innovative Deployments to Enhance Arterials (IDEA) encourages municipalities to implement mature and proven technologies to improve a variety of traffic operations applications. The City is currently working with the MTC on the Systems Engineering process portion of this project.
West Las Positas Boulevard Corridor Improvement Plan - The West Las Positas Boulevard Corridor Plan will address existing deficiencies in the bicycle and pedestrian network and develop concepts to address the existing deficiencies by: 1) collecting existing data; 2) identifying deficiencies; 3) collecting community and stakeholder input; 4) developing concepts; and 5) creating an implementation and funding plan for the West Las Positas Boulevard corridor. The study is expected to be completed by summer 2019. A website will be up and running in early January with dates for upcoming public meetings and project information.
