Local and federal elected officials held a ceremonial groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday for the Alamo Canal Trail undercrossing project in Dublin.
The East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) in collaboration with the Cities of Dublin and Pleasanton, Alameda County Transportation Commission , Zone 7 Water Agency, and Caltrans, is closing one of the last gaps in the regional bicycle trail network between the communities of Pleasanton and Dublin.
This freeway undercrossing trail will provide a safe, non-motorized route that children and adults can use to travel between schools, homes, and major public destinations in Dublin and Pleasanton. The trail link will provide an important transportation route to travel to and from destinations including the Pleasanton BART station, AC Transit bus routes, community parks, Alameda County Fairgrounds and popular downtown areas of Dublin and Pleasanton.
The project is expected to be completed and open for public use in autumn 2012.
