The third public workshop for the Shoreline Boulevard Corridor Study will be Thursday, October 16 at the Adobe Building (157 Moffett Blvd.) at 6:30 p.m. The workshop will include a presentation on the latest design concepts, including separated bicycle lanes, protected intersection improvements, a dedicated transit lane, bicycle lanes on Stierlin Road, and a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge over Highway 101 near the existing Shoreline Boulevard overcrossing.

These proposed concepts are designed to encourage multimodal travel for commuters and residents along the Shoreline Boulevard corridor and are based on previous public input and technical analyses. Workshop participants will be able to review the proposed improvements and provide feedback to City staff. In addition, a virtual version of the workshop will be launched on the project website ShorelineCorridor.com by October 20 and will remain open for public comment through mid-November. The final Shoreline Boulevard Corridor Study will be presented to the Mountain View City Council for adoption in November.

The Shoreline Boulevard Corridor Study builds on the City’s 2013 Shoreline Transportation Study and City Council goal to reduce single-occupancy vehicle use to and from North Bayshore. To meet those goals, the proposed concepts are designed to improve multimodal access along the Shoreline Boulevard corridor and transit improvements to Shoreline Boulevard, Stierlin Road and the Mountain View Transit Center station area.
