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 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.

The study will identify, evaluate, and recommend a package of multimodal and operational strategies to enhance bicycle and pedestrian safety and circulation, residential and school access, and trail connectivity for all users.  

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

Project timeline

The overall study is expected to take 18 months to complete as illustrated here:

Stakeholder engagement

Advisory Group:

An advisory group has been formed and is 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.

Online Survey - Summer 2021:

An online survey with an interactive map and a questionnaire was released in July 2021 for a 3-week period. It sought input from the local community and other users of the road in terms of issues, concerns or suggestions for improvements. It received robust response, which is being used to develop the potential improvement concepts.

Coming Soon - Fall 2021 Community Workshops:

There will be a pop-up and community workshops to present the draft improvement concepts. Information coming soon.
