Project Funding: SB1 SHOPP
On interstate route 880, in Alameda County in San Leandro at southbound off –ramp from route 880/23 connector to Washington Ave.
Purpose and Need:
Traffic queuing onto the Washington Avenue off-ramp was reported as the primary cause for rear-end accidents at the SB Route 880 / SB Route 238 connector. The purpose of the project is to improve the operation of the Washington Avenue off-ramp and on-ramp and thereby to reduce the potential for accidents.
