Creating the Vision for Brentwood Boulevard

A traditional American boulevard with distinctive buildings facing the boulevard including comfortable walkways and generous landscaping to provide an active, inviting, and attractive location for residents, workers, and visitors.

Brentwood Boulevard is an important corridor in the City of Brentwood and currently serves as State Route 4.

By the end of 2011, it is anticipated that the SR 4 Bypass will become fully operational on the west side of Brentwood. Once this occurs, CalTrans will relinquish Brentwood Boulevard to the City. In anticipation of this event, the City is preparing a Specific Plan for Brentwood Boulevard to plan for the future land uses and infrastructure needs of this corridor.


The City is proposing to revitalize and encourage new development along an approximately two-mile portion of the Brentwood Boulevard (State Route 4) corridor from Delta Road on the north to Second Street on the south, consisting of approximately 315 acres.

The Specific Plan establishes a framework to guide development and improvements for the area over several decades. The Specific Plan creates long-term opportunities for change as the corridor transitions from an auto-oriented rural State Route to a local arterial roadway with enhanced facilities for auto drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit riders. The Specific Plan includes a range of uses, including commercial, office, industrial, residential, mixed-use, and parks/open space.

A draft plan and Environmental Impact Report was prepared in 2008, but are in the process of being revised to address concerns that were raised about the flexibility of the plan.
