Pine Hollow Road Complete Streets Feasibility Study
The City of Concord, jointly with the City of Clayton, 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 study corridor is a 2.2-mile segment of Pine Hollow Road/Alberta Way from Clayton Valley Charter High School to Mount Diablo Elementary School. The corridor serves as an important connection between schools, parks, as well as residential and recreation areas within the cities of Concord and Clayton. Pine Hollow Road also experiences significant truck traffic as it serves as an access route for two quarries located in the unincorporated County directly south of the roadway.
On March 9, 2021, the City Council approved a Task Order with Kimley-Horn to perform the feasibility study. The study was conducted from Summer 2021 to Fall 2022.
The study has identified, evaluated, and recommended a package of multimodal and operational strategies to enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety and circulation, residential and school access, access to transit, and trail connectivity for all users. The study is grounded in a robust public engagement process. Other key elements of the study include detailed existing conditions review and transportation technical analysis to develop design alternatives that incorporate Complete Streets elements.
The study recommendations were approved by the City's Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) on June 21, 2022. The City Council approved the study on August 23, 2022.
Recommended Concept Design
Based on feedback received from the community in Summer 2021, Fall 2021, and Spring 2022, as well as the extensive technical analysis, the project team has prepared a detailed final set of recommended corridor improvements, which was approved by the City Council in August 2022. The recommended concept design for the corridor improvements is available here.
Renderings for two locations were prepared to show the representative recommended improvements compared with existing conditions:
Advisory Group: An advisory group was been formed to guide this study, and was comprised of key stakeholders including representatives from each of the five schools within the study area, staff from the Cities of Concord and Clayton, County Connection and Bike Concord.
Community Outreach: Extensive community outreach using various methods and tools was performed throughout the study period. It initially focused on identifying improvement needs and later gathered feedback on the proposed improvement concept options, and finally on the recommended improvement concepts.
