annual street resurfacing and slurry seal

The City of Mountain View is pleased to announce it will be conducting its annual street resurfacing and slurry seal/microsurfacing project in your neighborhood in April/May 2017. The contractor is scheduled to perform this operation starting at 7:30 - 4:00 p.m. The list of streets selected for this year’s project can be found below with schedule and limits:

Link to attached map

The slurry seal/microsurfacing process spreads a thin layer of asphalt and aggregate mixture on the street surface to provide a protective coating to extend the pavement life and improve its appearance. During construction, curbside parking will be restricted and through-traffic will be limited.  No parking signs with the date and time of no-parking restrictions will be posted 48 hours in advance. Please move your vehicle off the street by 7 a.m. on the posted day or your vehicle will be towed. It is not recommended to drive or walk on the pavement surface until the Contractor has removed all barricades and traffic cones so please park your vehicle outside the work limits.  Please check this site regularly for updates as schedule may change due to weather conditions.

If you have any questions about this project, call Rajni Sukhwani, at (650) 903-6311 or rajni.sukhwani@mountainview.gov.

latham street/church street bicycle boulevard feasibility Study

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.

 

SHORELINE BOULEVARD BUS LANe AND UTILITY IMPROVEMENTS

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.

Calderon avenue bike lane improvements

The proposed project will improve bicycle safety on Calderon Avenue, from West Evelyn Avenue to Mercy Street, by adding bike lanes in both directions and repaving the street's surface. Approximately nine on-street parking spaces on the west side of Calderon Avenue from Dana Street to Mercy Street will be removed to allow space for the new bicycle lanes. The project started construction in March 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by May 2017. If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at (650) 903-6311.

MOUNTAIN VIEW COMMUNITY CENTER DESIGN

The project will expand and renovate the existing community center to 28,600 square feet and will update the architectural character of the building, improve accessibility, increase the seating capacity of the Social Hall, and add three multipurpose rooms. The Social Hall will be added to the north side of the building with a courtyard that will open out to Rengstorff Park. The preschool will be located on the back/east side of the building with a relocated playground.  The project will create a more prominent front entrance, add an elevator, add a warming/preparation kitchen for catered events, a dedicated entrance to the Social Hall, and replace the aging roof, mechanical and plumbing systems.  The site plan will include a new driveway aligned with Stanford Avenue with a traffic signal and a drop-off zone at the Social Hall entry.  Proposed concept drawings are shown via the following links. 

Construction of the traffic signal work is scheduled to start in early summer and the community center remodel is scheduled to start late August 2017.

A new City park named Heritage Park was open on December 10, 2016 with a dedication ceremony.  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 future beehives.

  

 

New photovoltaic systems installed at city facilities

New solar photovoltaic systems have been installed at three City facilities including parking lots at the Golf Pro Shop and Shoreline Maintenance Facility in Shoreline Regional Park, and on top of a water reservoir at the Municipal Operations Center. The three combined systems generate up to 583 kW of energy that will reduce approximately 600 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually.
