Irvine Shares the Way

Irvine Shares the Way is intended to improve the safety of everyone in Irvine, whether they are walking, bicycling, or driving. Irvine Shares the Way aims to raise awareness of traffic laws and remind our community how we can reduce the chances of a collision while walking, bicycling, and driving.

On a continual basis, the City of Irvine will provide new materials and features on our website and host workshops, family-friendly events, and more!

We are also always working to enhance our roadways, sidewalks, and bike trails to improve safety for all of our users. Stay informed of news and events by signing up for our email list at

South Yale Corridor Improvements Project

The South Yale Corridor Improvements Project will evaluate the south segment of Yale Avenue in the City of Irvine (City), between the I-405 Freeway and University Drive. The project aims to better utilize the available roadway space to best serve community needs such as safety, access to neighborhoods and the school, as well as connections to nearby parks and trails. 

This project will work with the community to identify roadway concepts to address the needs of local users along South Yale Avenue. The project was identified in the City’s 2020 Strategic Active Transportation Plan and seeks to provide opportunities for multi-modal uses. The project development activities for this phase will entail the preparation of a Project Report (study), preliminary design plans, and environmental clearance. 

For more information, see the project fact sheet below.
