Otis Drive Safety Project – Transportation Commission Meeting

Otis Drive is on the agenda of the Transportation Commission meeting this Wednesday, May 22 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers (3rd floor) at Alameda City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave. Community members – including kids – are encouraged to attend and speak about about what these changes would mean to them. (This project will also be on the City Council agenda for Tuesday, June 4 at 7 p.m.) 

City staff and the consultant team are recommending approval of a design concept, which will allow for the low-cost improvements to be constructed next year.  The recommended concept for the one-mile study area segment of Otis Drive between Westline Drive and Willow Street is expected to reduce speeds and improve safety for all street users including people who walk, bike, take the bus and drive.

You can read all about it here or see an outline plan here. If you want to comment but are unable to attend the meeting, please email
