The Public Works Department is working on a wide variety of capital projects such as City buildings, roadway improvements, parks, and utilities. Projects are underway in various phases such as planning, studies, design, and/or construction. A report has been prepared to provide status information on a portion of the active Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects.

The City is planning a bicycle boulevard along Latham/Church Street from Showers Drive to Highway 237 to make it safer for you and for your family to bike through the area. A bicycle boulevard prioritizes bicycle travel on a low-speed/low-traffic street. It is a low stress facility that appeals to people including kids of all bicycling abilities. The study will help determine a conceptual plan for designing and implementing a bicycle boulevard along the Latham/Church corridor.
A Community Meeting was held on Monday, March 27, 2017 and provided participants with information about the proposed concept, traffic calming and intersection treatments. The presentation can be found here.
Contact the Public Works Department at (650) 903-6311 for more information.
The proposed project will construct a dedicated center-running reversible bus lane and improve pedestrian and bicyclist facilities on Shoreline Boulevard between Middlefield Road and Pear Avenue. The project would improve the flow of buses along the Shoreline Boulevard corridor and would not eliminate any existing vehicle lanes. Water and sewer pipelines on Shoreline Boulevard between Middlefield Road and Highway 101 will also be replaced.
For more information on the project, please view the presentation discussed at a community meeting on July 26, 2016.
Construction activities for the Community Center Remodel Project as well as a related project that includes a new traffic signal, driveway and various off-site utilities at Rengstorff and Stanford Avenues have begun.
Last week, a temporary construction fence was installed along Rengstorff Avenue that enclosed the site around the existing community center and its parking lot. This fence is necessary to secure the site and ensure safety of the public during construction.
Please do not attempt to enter the site or park your car in the southwestern parking lot off of Rengstorff Avenue until construction is completed and the fence is removed.
The Community Center Remodel and site improvements phase construction began in late August 2017 and will be completed in early 2019.
The traffic signal and right-of-way utilities phase of the project will also be starting very soon, so please be on the lookout for temporary traffic control signs, equipment and construction personnel.
*There will be minor utility work on Crisanto Ave as well as part of this project.
For construction hours and contact information, please see the project construction page via this link.
The construction of bike lane improvements on Calderon Avenue, from West Evelyn Avenue to Mercy Street are now completed and open for public use.
Come visit the new Heritage Park which was opened to the public on December 10, 2016. The 1.2 acre park, located at 771 N. Rengstorff Avenue, is now home to the Immigrant House, an 80-year old windmill, a demonstration garden, and beehives.
