Pine Hollow Road Complete Streets Feasibility Study

Project background

The City of Concord was awarded a Caltrans Sustainable Transportation Planning Grant to conduct a Complete Streets Feasibility Study along Pine Hollow Road. This project was identified as a recommended project in the city’s 2016 Bicycle, Pedestrian and Safe Routes to Transit Plan. The corridor serves as an important connection between schools, parks, as well as residential and recreation areas within the cities of Concord and Clayton. 

The study will identify, evaluate, and recommend strategies to enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety and circulation, residential and school access, trail connectivity, and auto circulation along a 2.2-mile segment of Pine Hollow Road/Alberta Way from Clayton Valley Charter High School to Mount Diablo Elementary School. 

On March 9, 2021, the City Council approved a Task Order with Kimley-Horn to perform the feasibility study, which will include:

  • a robust public engagement process
  • detailed transportation analysis to develop design alternatives that incorporate Complete Streets elements
  • address bicycle and pedestrian improvements
  • improve accessibility to transit  Map 782_620
