For more than 4 years, the City has been working with the community and Caltrans towards rehabilitating the Fair Oaks Avenue Bridge. Located between Kifer Road and Evelyn Avenue, the bridge crosses over the Caltrain tracks and Hendy Avenue. Once complete, this safety enhancement project will maintain the same number of automobile lanes, add a new separated sidewalk on the east side of the bridge, and widen the bridge’s existing bicycle lanes.
The project environmental review was completed in March 2015. The City and its consultant team are currently preparing final construction-level design plans and identifying any issues that need to be resolved before construction can commence. The City anticipates construction will begin winter 2017 and be complete summer 2018.
The City’s goal is to maintain one travel lane and one bike lane in each direction during this time. However, some short-term lane closures may be required. In addition, the Hendy Avenue underpass area will be closed during early construction phases (approximately 8-10 months) to help expedite the overall construction schedule. Pedestrian access over the Caltrain corridor will be maintained until bridge construction is complete.
