The Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor Project would assess problem areas along the corridor, evaluate technologies best suited for each problem, and implement the appropriate technologies to make the corridor safer. The project is consistent with the City’s Vision Zero traffic safety goals, meets the City’s General Plan vision and sustainability goals, improves efficient multimodal mobility, and supports the growing population along Fremont Boulevard.
As part of the Vision Zero initiative, Fremont Boulevard reduced auto-collisions by 30% in 2017. The technologies implemented as part of this project would continue to help reduce auto-collisions along the corridor.

This project would help modernize the traffic signal system along Fremont Boulevard and improve its multimodal mobility, and ultimately make it safer for bicyclists, pedestrians, transit-riders, and automobile drivers across the board.
Sensor‐based infrastructure, communication systems, smart lighting, adaptive signal control, and connected vehicles/infrastructure/ devices are all possible technologies that would be implemented as part of this project. No specific vendors have been chosen for this project and specific technology solutions would be tailored to the issues identified in different areas.
Minor construction in the installation of the new smart technology solutions would be expected during the implementation phase of the project. However, no major long-term construction (i.e., lane changes, reductions, etc.) would be expected.
