WELL ABANDONMENTS 10,17 AND 20, PROJECT 19-39

The City of Mountain View is abandoning three (3) existing wells - Well 10 (near Rengstorff Avenue and Central Expressway intersection), Well 17 (at Rengstorff Park) and Well 20 (near Alice Avenue and Moorpark Way intersection). See location map below. These wells have been out of service for a few years due to mechanical issues and low production. The project consists of abandoning the well infrastructure and appurtenances along with the restoration of the well surface.

City Council will be considering the plans and specifications and authorizing the project for construction bidding on:

TUESDAY, JUNE 22, 2021 – 6:30 p.m.(or as soon as the item can be heard). This item is on Consent and will not be discussed unless the item is pulled.

SYLVAN PARK TRELLIS REPLACEMENT PROJECT

This project involves the replacement of the existing trellis and Wisteria plants in the vicinity of the Sylvan Park Amphitheater.  Click here for a project location map.

The 40-year-old trellis has reached the end of its useful life, and the Wisteria growing on it must be removed in order to replace the trellis.  The new trellis will look similar to the existing trellis, but some alternate trellis materials are being proposed to improve the durability and maintenance of the structure.

Staff will be presenting a concept plan for the new trellis design at the virtual Parks and Recreation Commission meeting on Wednesday, May 12, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. PDT.  To sign up to attend the meeting, please go to:

Rengstorff avenue Grade Separation Project

The City of Mountain View and the Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board (JPB) have been collaborating on the Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Clearance Phase of the Rengstorff Avenue Grade Separation Project.  A community meeting was held November 2, 2020, in which staff presented proposed project features, layout, temporary construction impact and received community input.
 
The project proposes to depress the intersection of Rengstorff Avenue and Central Expressway to enhance safety, traffic flow, railroad operational safety and traffic movement along adjacent streets and intersections.  The proposed project includes the following features: Leland Connector to maintain vehicle access to La Plaza Market, an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant pathway to provide access between Crisanto Avenue and Rengstorff Avenue, a bicycle/pedestrian overcrossing to maintain east-west connection across Rengstorff Avenue, and the elevated train tracks to completely separate the train from vehicle, pedestrian and bicycle traffic on Rengstorff Avenue.
 
The Preliminary Engineering and Environmental Clearance Phase is scheduled to be completed early 2021 and staff is planning to continue on to the final design phase in 2021 pending funding availability.
