The Campus Drive Traffic Calming Project spans 0.78 miles of Campus Drive between 2nd Street and Hayward Boulevard. The area is served by multiple neighborhoods, California State University East Bay, hiking trails, churches, senior facility, and Fire Station 9. Hayward identified Campus Drive as a priority corridor for traffic calming improvements based on community concerns, traffic volume, speed and collision data, and other factors. The purpose of the project is to identify pedestrian, bicycle, and traffic calming improvements to address traffic safety concerns and mobility needs in the corridor that are supported by the community.
The pilot program on Campus Drive will temporarily close off the second southbound lane between Oakes Drive and Highland Blvd using flexible posts to determine the feasibility of permanently removing the second lane and making Campus Drive a two-lane street. Attachment A shows a graphical drawing of the pilot program on Campus Drive. The pilot program will last a duration of two (2) months to provide sufficient time to monitor traffic along the corridor. After the completion of the pilot program, the City will prepare a traffic evaluation to present to the community for further feedback on the next steps.
