Highway 17 Bicycle & Pedestrian Overcrossing
Project Update 9-16-22
Project Update 07-01-22
Thank you to those who attended the Community meeting/workshop on Wednesday, June 29th. At the meeting, video simulations of the bridge types were presented, providing aerial views of the proposed bridge types from Highway 17 looking northbound and southbound, and also from the perspective of a pedestrian on each bridge type. The images and videos presented provided an opportunity for the community members to better understand how the proposed bridges would fit into the surroundings. The videos are approximate representations and details such as color, fencing, landscaping, wall treatments, etc. are yet to be designed. All images and videos are subject to future revisions pending further project coordination and design development.
The June 29th Community Meeting/Workshop presentation and videos can now be viewed by clicking on the following links:
Included in the June 29th community meeting was an live polling session to help the project team understand and gauge the community's support for each of the three proposed bridge types. The project team plans to open up a similar polling session on the project page in September, and will send out notifications to all those who have subscribed to the "Notify Me" services when the polling session has opened. We encourage those who have not shared their preferences regarding bridge type to participate in the upcoming September polling session. Should you have any questions or comments in the meantime, please reach out to the project team at the following e-mail:
Project Update 6-16-22
Over the past months, the project team has conducted several pop-up events to raise awareness of the Highway 17 Bicycle and Pedestrian Overcrossing (BPOC) Project and to solicit feedback from the community. Events held at Spring Into the Green, the Los Gatos Farmer's Market, and along the Los Gatos Creek Trail have resulted in the collection of valuable community input and feedback for the project. Continuing in this effort, a second on-line community has been scheduled for the evening of June 29th from 6-7:30 pm to present updated project information and estimates and to continue the process of determining community preference for a bridge type. We hope you will be able to join us for this important meeting:
