New Alameda Point Entry During Construction
New access point at Trident Avenue opens as Atlantic Avenue access point closes
Construction has begun on the first phase of the $1 billion mixed-use, transit-oriented waterfront development at the gateway to Alameda Point, called Site A. Site A is located in the middle of Alameda Point and effectively splits Alameda Point in half. The Main Street Ferry Terminal, Antiques Faire, Spirits Alley, Bladium, and Lexington and Multi-Purpose fields are located to the north, and the USS Hornet is located to the south. Due to construction taking place, extended road closures will occur in the middle of Alameda Point at Ferry Point and Orion Street. In addition, the Atlantic Avenue entrance will be closed at Main Street and a new entrance to Alameda Point will open one block away at Trident Avenue. Please see the map below for details.
WHEN: Extended road closures and new access points to open June 26, 2018, and remain in place for two years
3 NORTH ALAMEDA POINT ACCESS POINTS: New access point at Trident Avenue, Midway, and Main Street
2 SOUTH ALAMEDA POINT ACCESS POINTS: Pacific Avenue, Oriskany Avenue
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY: Former Navy facilities and heavy industrial equipment are being torn down, while major infrastructure improvements are being built, including new water, sewer, electrical and gas lines, newly paved streets with bike and transit lanes, and bulkhead improvements on Seaplane Lagoon for the new ferry terminal. The new mixed-use community will include apartments, townhomes, parks, and nearly 100,000 square feet of space for restaurants, retailers, makers, R&D, and office users.
The City Engineer, Public Works, Base Reuse, and Transportation Departments are working together to minimize disruptions. The new access point created at Trident Avenue and Main Street is one block north of the existing access point at Atlantic Avenue and Main Street. We have alerted online map applications about the change. And we will place signage on Main Street to alert travelers about the new access point.
“We encourage everyone to determine their route ahead of time so you do not experience any delays,” stated City Engineer Scott Wikstrom. “If you are traveling to north Alameda Point, use the Trident Avenue entrance instead of the Atlantic Avenue entrance; if you are traveling to south Alameda Point, use Pacific Avenue instead of Atlantic Avenue. And if you are traveling within Alameda Point, use Main Street to connect from north to south.”
