Bay Farm Island Bike/Walk Path to Close Starting August 15

On August 14, the City of Alameda sent AUSD the following alert: 

"Two segments of the waterfront trail (aka Shoreline Park) leading up to the Bay Farm Island bike bridge will close back-to-back from August 15-September 8 while the City widens and repaves the trail, eliminating hazardous conditions and creating a smooth walking and riding surface. 

Many young people use these trails as they travel to and from school. Marked detours are in place: 

  • Phase 1 “U” Detour: Sheffield to Puddingstone to Robert Davey Jr. to Packet Landing OR Island Dr/Veterans Ct
  • Phase 2 “U” Detour: Sheffield to Puddingstone to Robert Davey Jr. to Island Dr/Veterans Ct

Please use extra caution in the area. During both phases, avoid using the sidewalk on the north side of Robert Davey Jr., from Puddingstone to Packet Landing, since the EBMUD project at the Packet Landing corner has closed this crosswalk. We are working hard to finish the work quickly and will open the improved trail sooner if possible. Check out the bikeway facilities for planning your alternate route at

After this project is complete, we’ll be repairing other trail segments on Bay Farm! In the meantime, please report service requests to See City alerts and advisories at"
