S. Santa Cruz Avenue at Wood Road Street Closure

Temporary Traffic Measures
July 2-4, 2016

The Town of Los Gatos continues to thrive as a destination to live, work, and play, as well as shop and dine.

The Town is piloting different traffic mechanisms and collecting data to assess potential transportation options. To achieve this, the Town has implemented a temporary closure along South Santa Cruz Avenue at Wood Road. The closure effectively eliminates southbound access to Highway 17. Through the use of signage and public outreach, the Town has identified freeway entrances at Highway 9 and Lark Avenue as the preferred routes. Traffic data show that the fastest route to the beach is to remain on Highway 17 rather than cutting through Los Gatos.

The temporary closure takes the form of a temporary traffic circle at South Santa Cruz Avenue and Wood Road. Vehicles entering the circle headed south on Santa Cruz Avenue are redirected back north. The traffic circle also accommodates vehicles exiting northbound Highway 17 and local traffic from Wood Road.

The pilot closure will be in place on July 2, 3, and 4, and July 9 and 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Weekend travelers to the coast are encouraged to remain on Highway 17 as the quickest route to the beach. Los Gatos welcomes visitors to shop, dine, and enjoy the Town.
