Back in November 2012, the City of Alameda's Transportation commission approved a cycle track to go along Shore Line and Westline Drives.
The Shore Line Drive/Westline Drive Bikeway Project has been part of the city's Bicycle Master Plan since 1999.
After three community meetings, the following project goals were formed: providing more bicycle options, minimizing traffic impacts, maintaining bay views, reducing multi-use path conflicts, providing parking for apartments/condos, improving visibility, reducing motor vehicle speeds and making the area safer.
City staff is currently in the process of finalizing the construction design and drawings along with allocating money for the project. They expect to finish this by the middle of this year.
Construction is planned to start the following year and by mid 2014, the cycle track should be completed.
