About the  Project

Supporting a Walkable Main Street

The City of Albany is developing a Complete Streets and Corridor Revitalization Plan for Solano Avenue from Masonic Avenue to Tulare Avenue to create an active main street environment. An extensive community engagement process will be deployed to identify ideas and strategies to:

  • Improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists

  • Enhance access to transit

  • Promote a cohesive streetscape

  • Support local economic activity

The outcome will be a plan with Complete Streets designs for roadway, sidewalk and intersection changes that support all modes and users of all ages and abilities, builds foot traffic for local businesses, encourages interaction in public spaces, and adds vibrancy to the community.

This project is made possible with the support of a Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant received by the City in partnership with the Local Government Commission.
