Creating a Pedestrian “Main Street” for the Castro Valley Community
To create a safe, comfortable and attractive pedestrian main street for downtown Castro Valley, a series of street improvements totaling over $9M are currently being implemented for Castro Valley Boulevard.
These improvements intend to:
•Calm the traffic environment by reconfiguring traffic lanes and providing on-street parking with shared bicycle access while still maintaining adequate traffic capacity on the Boulevard.
•Create a beautiful and inviting pedestrian environment that will encourage the community to access Castro Valley Boulevard for shopping, dining and entertainment by providing widened sidewalks with ample seating areas, a canopy of street trees and planter beds, landscaped bulb-outs, street furnishings and gateway markers.
