A New Look for Alameda
Construction is anticipated to begin in April 2018 on the Alameda Streetscape Project along Alameda Avenue between Sheridan Boulevard and Carr Street. The project includes widening portions of Alameda Avenue, adding sidewalks (including Teller Street), landscaped medians and place-making elements; installing trees and aesthetic features such as flagstone accents; and making other improvements.
These place-making improvements will bolster the economic vitality of the Alameda corridor in Lakewood, helping to produce continuing benefits to the local economy -- helping brand the Alameda Corridor as a wonderfully designed, efficient area where businesses thrive. Motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and mass transit users will also find the corridor more inviting and usable.
Construction on the project
Crews will be widening the roadway to accommodate landscaped island medians, sidewalks, curb and gutter, tree planting, landscape/irrigation and aesthetic features such as flagstone monuments, a new mast arm signal at Teller Street and street lighting.

The project is overseen by the Lakewood Reinvestment Authority (LRA). Lakewood voters created the LRA in 1997 to encourage reinvestment in specific areas of the city to ensure their economic strength. In October 2017, the LRA approved the funding for the Alameda Streetscape Project's three areas, and the Project aligns with improvements noted in the City’s Downtown Lakewood Connectivity and Urban Design Plan as well as with Lakewood’s Comprehensive Plan.
The LRA has contracted with American Civil Constructors LLC to deliver three key areas of roadway and landscape improvements:
- West Alameda Avenue from South Carr Street to South Pierce Street
- West Alameda Avenue from South Harlan Street to South Benton Street
- South Teller Street from West Alameda Avenue to West Bayaud Place.
With these three areas, the Alameda Streetscape Project will bolster economic vitality, enhance community identity, improve safety, and produce continuing benefits for the local economy.
