For 17 years, Bike Walk Alameda has been fighting for safer and more comfortable streets for people who walk and bike. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the projects Bike Walk Alameda helped bring to fruition.
Protected bike lanes on Shoreline Drive.
Sharrows on Oak Street.
Buffered bike lanes on Robert Davey Jr. Drive.
Bike parking at the Alameda Landing Target store.
Bike racks on Park Street.

In partnership with Public Works, the yellow pylons were installed to highlight this very wide Lum School Otis Street crosswalk. These attract drivers’ attention and provide increased visibility and safety for the crossing guards and for the children.
Public Works installed high visibility school crosswalk signs at 10 elementary schools. This project was done in conjunction with Walk & Roll to School Day.
After years of resident complaints and a near-fatal accident, islands and stop signs were installed on Encinal Avenue at Versailles to make the intersection a four-way stop.
These paddle in-pavement pedestrian warning signs have been installed throughout Alameda. They have been very effective in drawing attention to people in the crosswalk.
