Santa Clara County (California) Roads Department will present their paving maintenance schedule at the VTA BPAC meeting next Wednesday, January 13, 2016, and they’ve asked for input from the BPAC regarding opportunities for Complete Streets improvements for these roads.
County Roads is responsible for maintaining all surface streets in unincorporated Santa Clara County. The County Roads Department will chipseal the roads listed below in 2016. This is only a pavement maintenance project with no plans to improve intersections, but the department seeks input from the BPAC on roads where striping can be changed to help improve pedestrian and cyclist safety and comfort. I personally would love to see Bikes May Use Full Lane signs on some of the narrow mountain roads such as Black Road.
County Roads will also take comments regarding any other Complete Streets features that the BPAC members note are needed for the roads included in this list and the County will look for grant or other opportunities to implement these improvements.
You can submit your comments by attending the BPAC meeting next Wednesday, January 13, 2016 at 6:30 PM. The meeting takes place in Conference Room B-104 at VTA headquarters on North First Street in North San Jose.
If you cannot make the meeting, you can also submit comments to Board.firstname.lastname@example.org; be sure to mention these are for the BPAC meeting on January 13. You can also submit your comments directly to Dawn Cameron with County Roads at email@example.com.
Other items on the agenda include bike storage inside BRT buses, funding green lanes on Page Mill Road at I-280, and the outreach plan for the new county bike plan. View the full agenda here [34 page PDF].
