Google, in conjunction with the City of Mountain View, will be making improvements to the southern end of Charleston Park located in the North Bayshore.  The park improvements result from transportation improvements  approved by City Council for consolidated transit  pull-out stops along the park’s frontage on Charleston Road.  Google is currently constructing the active transportation elements including: sidewalks, two-way cycle tracks, a transit area with bus pull-out, bicycle parking areas, and landscaping buffers between each one of these facilities between Shoreline Boulevard and Huff Avenue. See proposed concept map. The project is currently in the design phase with a design completion schedule of Fall 2019.

Leong Drive Water and Sewer Main Construction

The City of Mountain View will be replacing water and sewer mains along Leong Drive, between Walker Drive and Evandale Avenue. In addition, the sanitary sewer main improvements include replacement of the existing main across Moffett Boulevard and a private property (850 Leong Drive) onto Leong Drive, and installation of a new sewer main on Leong Drive from Evandale Avenue to Fairchild Drive (map).

Construction is scheduled to start in summer 2019 and be completed by early 2020.  In order to expedite construction, longer weekday construction hours and Saturday construction may be considered.  During construction, street parking will be restricted and sidewalk on one side of the street may be closed.  Traffic controls, closures, and detours will be implemented during various construction phases and may cause traffic delays in the area.  Subsequent notices will be sent prior to start of construction by the contractor.  If you have any questions about this project, please contact Tina Tseng, Senior Civil Engineer, at tina.tseng@mountainview.gov or (650) 903-6311.
