Kennedy Road serves as an important connection between many destinations along Los Gatos Boulevard with the residential area along Kennedy Road. It is designated as a Walk and Roll to School Suggested Route and many students walk and bike to school and many residents also use the street.
There is no sidewalk on either side of Kennedy Road so pedestrians have to walk along roadway next to moving vehicles. The street is busy with traffic during the busy hours. The Town has received many complaints about the unsafe conditions, especially for the youth, the elderly and people with mobility limitations.
Pedestrian and bicyclist traveled along roadway
The Town has completed a conceptual design (Kennedy Bike and Pedestrian Improvements) to include sidewalks and striped bike lanes. The goal is to provide safe facilities for people who walk and bike. The project final design and construction will be funded by a Measure B grant. Given the funding schedule, the Town plans to begin the final design in the 2026-2028 time frame.
