STEVENS CREEK TRAIL CLOSURE & DETOUR
Effective October 4, 2017: Stevens Creek Emergency Repairs (Trail Impacts)
Over the next 50 days the Hotel Bypass Trail will be closed. Trail users will be routed along Yuba Drive and El Camino Real. Contractors with the District will work from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, to complete the repairs.
The Santa Clara Valley Water District emergency erosion repair will shore up a bank weakened by January and February storms. In August, the bank endured soil loss that created a gap in the Stevens Creek Trail already closed due to erosion caused by this year's winter storms. Further study revealed that erosion continues to grow in width and length and is now about five- to six-feet away from the hotel bypass trail and Redwood trees.
Permanent repairs to the creek bank and Stevens Creek Trail will start summer 2018.

BE KIND TO YOUR TREES
Our mature trees were stressed by five years of drought. You can help them out by watering them with a soaker hose once a month through the hot summer.
Your trees will love you for it.
