Fremont Blvd. Safe and Smart Corridor Project $8.5M Total ($5.3M Const. and $3.2M procurement) (ACTC Funded)
Park Engineering provided construction management and inspection services to the City of Fremont for the Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor Project (PWC 8922). The project creatively used technology to move traffic efficiently along the Fremont Boulevard corridor at a safe speed, ensure safe pedestrian and bicycle movement, enhance transit service, improve management of the traffic signal/lighting systems, and install backbone infrastructure to accommodate future transportation technologies. The project limits included a 10-mile corridor along Fremont Boulevard (with 38 signalized intersections), from I-880 in North Fremont to I-880 in South Fremont (Innovation District), as well as along Thornton Avenue (from Fremont Boulevard to Paseo Padre Parkway) and along Paseo Padre Parkway (from Thornton Avenue to Walnut Avenue).
