Highway 84 Controversy Continues

Acta Officials Appeal For Community Review

In a final attempt to solve differences between the cities of Fremont and Union City on the route of the 1986 Measure B Historic Parkway Project, Alameda County Transportation Authority officials appealed to the Fremont City Council to authorize an informational community meeting to present "Option 2" in north Fremont within the next month. Option 2 and another dubbed "Option 4+6" were discussed at the council meeting on Jan. 25 and grudging approval was given. At stake are millions of dollars currently set aside for the project. A report of community response is due back to the council on Mar. 1.

Neither proposal received enthusiastic response from council members. Option 2 provides a new four lane roadway along a "modified alignment" of the original Historic Parkway. Paseo Padre Parkway and Decoto Road would widen from four to six lanes where affected. Option 4+6 combines a link between Mission Boulevard and Niles Boulevard and a separate improved connection between Mission Boulevard and Peralta Boulevard connecting to Paseo Padre Parkway.

A proposed new deadline for project consensus is Feb. 28.
