Fremont Celebrates Milestone in Downtown Development: Capitol Avenue Project Completes Second Phase

Capitol Avenue Project, City of Fremont, Peninsula, Bay Area

Capitol Avenue Project, City of Fremont, Peninsula, Bay AreaIt was two years ago when the City of Fremont began the demolition of the three story office building that stood in between Capitol Avenue and Fremont Boulevard. With the demolition of this building, as well as major infrastructure improvements, the City has successfully connected Capitol Avenue, Downtown Fremont’s “Main Street,” to Fremont Boulevard.

This extension allows for further connectivity between the Fremont BART station, as well as two major retail and employment centers: Fremont Hub and Gateway Plaza. Now that phase II of the Capitol Avenue project has been completed, we want to celebrate all the exciting progress that’s been made with the entire community. Come join us on October 21 at 4 p.m. to commemorate this important milestone.

Following the event, you’ll be able to enjoy gourmet food trucks at Fremont Street Eats, visit the Alameda County Library Bookmobile, and take part in the City’s annual Halloween event, Trick or Treat on Downtown Safety Street. Fremont is truly building the foundation for a beautiful and thriving downtown. New additions to Capitol Avenue include a multi-modal street, unique screen walls, festoon lighting, street banners, that will enhance the pedestrian experience, diagonal parking, utilities placed underground that will power electric vehicle charging stations, improved bike lanes, wide sidewalks to allow for sidewalk cafes, and landscaping that will provide shade and create an inviting environment in the downtown district.

These improvements are just the beginning of what’s to come for Capitol Avenue. Downtown Fremont is well positioned to becoming a vibrant, bustling city center and a central place for the community to gather and celebrate.
