This project is planned for the 1.5 mile extension of Dublin Boulevard from Fallon Road to North Canyons Parkway in Livermore. The extension is planned to have four to six travel lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks, curb and gutter, traffic signals, street lighting, landscaped raised median islands, bus stops, and all city street utilities. This project requires preliminary engineering including a feasibility analysis to define the new roadway alignment, design cross-section, right of way, and environmental clearance before it can be moved forward for design and construction. On November 1, 2016, City Council approved a contract for Preliminary Engineering and an Environmental Impact Report. The project is not fully funded; however, the City of Dublin has submitted a project application for inclusion to the Alameda Countywide Transportation Plan. On April 27, 2017, Alameda CTC approved $8.288 million for the design and environmental phases of the project starting with the Fiscal Year 2017-2018 funding.
Planning level cost estimate for this project is approximately $79.6 million and is anticipated to be divided among the City of Dublin and the City of Livermore on the basis of street length in each jurisdiction. A more refined estimate will be developed as part of the preliminary engineering work currently underway. A segment of future roadway is within unincorporated Alameda County and project costs for this segment will be shared by Dublin and Livermore, unless other funding is acquired. Based on the simple centerline length and expected project improvements, it is expected that the City of Dublin will be responsible for approximately $63.3 million and Livermore will be responsible for the remainder ($16.3 million). Project cost allocation is through a memorandum of understanding (MOU) approved by City Council on April 19, 2016.
