In service since 1967, the Fair Oaks Avenue Bridge – located between Kifer Road and Evelyn Avenue – crosses over both the Caltrain tracks and Hendy Avenue. Regularly inspected by Caltrans and maintained by the City of Sunnyvale, the bridge is considered safe for driving but in need of a substantial rehabilitation. If the bridge remains in service without rehabilitation, significant and costly maintenance and repair will be needed.

As part of the bridge rehabilitation, the City plans to enhance pedestrian and bicycle facilities while maintaining four travel lanes for automobiles. The east side of the bridge deck will be widened by about 7 feet to accommodate a separated sidewalk and wider-than-existing bicycle lanes. Further pedestrian improvements are planned for the intersections where the bridge touches down at Kifer Road and at Evelyn Avenue. In addition, some of the bridge columns will be relocated to provide additional clearance and visibility to the portion of Hendy Avenue located beneath the bridge.
