ABOUT THE PROJECT

This freeway undercrossing trail provides a safe, non-motorized route for children and adults to travel between schools, homes, and major public destinations in Dublin and Pleasanton.  The trail link provides an important transportation route to travel to and from destinations including the Pleasanton BART station, AC Transit bus routes, shopping areas and malls, community parks, Alameda County Fairgrounds, major corporate business offices and employment centers, the civic centers, libraries, and popular downtown areas of Dublin and Pleasanton.

Construction began in April 2012.

PROJECT FUNDING

• TIGER II (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) federal discretionary grant program

• Federal Transportation Improvement Plan

• Alameda County’s Measure B

• East Bay Regional Park District’s Measure WW

• Cities of Dublin and Pleasanton

ABOUT TIGER II

The Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER Discretionary Grant program, provides a unique opportunity for the U.S. Department of Transportation to invest in road, rail, transit and port projects that promise to achieve critical national objectives. Congress dedicated $1.5 billion for TIGER I, $600 million for TIGER II, and $526.944 million for the FY 2011 round of TIGER Grants to fund projects that have a significant impact on the Nation, a region or a metropolitan area.  TIGER's highly competitive process, galvanized by tremendous applicant interest, allowed DOT to fund 51 innovative capital projects in TIGER I, and an additional 42 capital projects in TIGER II. TIGER II also featured a new Planning Grant category and 33 planning projects were also funded through TIGER II. In the FY 2011 round of TIGER Grants, DOT awarded 46 capital projects in 33 states and Puerto Rico. Each project is multi-modal, multi-jurisdictional or otherwise challenging to fund through existing programs. The TIGER program enables DOT to use a rigorous process to select projects with exceptional benefits, explore ways to deliver projects faster and save on construction costs, and make investments in our Nation's infrastructure that make communities more livable and sustainable.
