Castro Street Closure

Castro Summer Streats banner

The Castro StrEATS program is temporarily suspended due to new restrictions on outdoor dining under the State's Regional Stay-at-Home Order implemented by Santa Clara County. The new restrictions on outdoor dining went into effect at 10 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020 and will remain in place until the public health order is lifted.

Castro Street is open to pedestrians and closed to vehicular traffic. The 100 to 400 blocks of Castro Street will be closed to motor vehicles and buses on through 14 calendar days after the end of the State of Emergency.

Special thanks also go to VTA staff for their flexibility in rerouting bus routes as well as the Live Nation - Shoreline Amphitheatre and Mountain View Whisman School District for providing tables for us in Castro StrEATS. Staff also wish to thank the Downtown Association and the Mountain View Chamber of Commerce for their active collaboration on this effort.


The City is seeking feedback about Castro StrEATS. The survey should take about 7 minutes to complete. Your feedback will be used to understand the impact of the pilot program.
