South Santa Cruz Avenue Closure Begins This Weekend

Traffic in Los Gatos on busy weekends can significantly impact the quality of life in Town neighborhoods.  The Town Council has taken this challenge seriously and continues to explore solutions to balance the impacts of traffic with the inconveniences caused by mitigation measures. 
In pursuing solutions, the Town will partially close South Santa Cruz Avenue at Wood Road for three consecutive weekends beginning June 25 from 9 am to 3 pm. 
This partial closure will affect only southbound traffic on South Santa Cruz Avenue, the result of which will eliminate access to southbound Highway 17.  Access to and from Wood Road and exiting vehicles from northbound Highway 17 will enter a temporary traffic circle at Wood Road.  The traffic circle will also serve to redirect any traffic heading south on South Santa Cruz Avenue.  The image above depicts the location of the closure and the traffic flow.
Traffic message boards will alert drivers in advance of the closure and direct them to access Highway 17 via Highway 9. 
The ongoing weekend closure of Tait Avenue and Massol Avenue at Highway 9 will continue as well.  The Town is also collecting significant amounts traffic data to further inform future actions.
