The Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor is the City’s bold vision to creatively use technology to move traffic efficiently along the corridor at a safe speed, ensure safe pedestrian and bicycle movement, enhance transit service, and improve management of the traffic signal and lighting systems. The 9-mile section of Fremont Boulevard, between Paseo Padre Parkway and Cushing Parkway, would serve as a nationally significant demonstration of current traffic safety technologies and a test bed for new innovation opportunities.
The goal of the Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor project is to support Fremont’s General Plan vision to “serve as a national model of how an auto-oriented suburb can evolve into a sustainable, strategically urban, modern city” and to develop Fremont as a leading city of innovation in Silicon Valley. In addition, the project would support the Vision Zero policy goals related to eliminating traffic fatalities and Climate Action Plan sustainability goals to reduce transportation-based greenhouse gas emissions through transportation mode shift and reduce energy consumption. The Fremont Boulevard Safe and Smart Corridor project would be the catalyst for the adoption of innovative traffic technology solutions while improving the quality of life.
