Traffic Engineering

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:

  • Planning and operating the roadways, sidewalks, and bikeways in the City to provide for the safe and efficient movement of people, goods and services within Pleasanton.
  • Evaluating development proposals to determine their impacts to traffic flow and ascertain necessary mitigation.
  • Balancing the needs of the different modes of transportation: walking, biking, and driving.

The division:

  • Has installed a sophisticated communications network that links most of the traffic signals, traffic cameras, and detectors to the Traffic Operations Center.
  • Responds to common requests involving safety, speed, traffic signals, signs and markings, as well as school and neighborhood traffic conditions.

What's New:

Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update - City Council Workshop and Special Meeting to be held on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at 6:30 p.m., City Council Chamber, 200 Old Bernal Avenue.

Bernal at I-680 Landscape/Monument Sign - This project consists of landscaping and a gateway monument features at the I-680/Bernal Avenue interchange.  Work is ongoing with the completion of the project anticipated in July 2016.  Upon completion of this project, Bernal Avenue (from the Arroyo Bridge to Valley Avenue) will be repaved later this summer.  In total, these improvements will improve this major gateway into Pleasanton and set the bar for future gateway improvements at other locations within the City.

Amador Valley High School Traffic Signals - New traffic signals will be installed to improve access to and from the Amador Valley High School parking lot on Santa Rita Road this summer.  Project construction will start in May 2016 with completion in August 2016.  Signals will be installed at the middle and north driveways along Santa Rita Road with both driveways modified to allow for more efficient movement of vehicles into, and out of, the lot.  A sidewalk will also be constructed on the north property line of the parking lot from the existing sidewalk to the school entrance.  This new sidewalk will provide an alternate pedestrian pathway that does not cross the newly signalized intersections.

Camino Tassajara Road Closure - Camino Tassajara is scheduled to be closed by the City of Dublin north of Fallon Road from 5/2/16 to December 2016.  This closure was deemed necessary to repair a failing culvert under the roadway.  No through traffic will be permitted through the closure area (see map below).  Alternate routes include Windemere Parkway and Bollinger Canyon Road. 

A website has been setup for this closure to provide current project information -  For more information contact the City of Dublin Public Works at 925-833-6630.
