The towers for Cupertino's Mary Avenue Bicycle Footbridge over 280 are very conspicuously in place on both sides of 280 just west of the 85 interchange. Time lapse photos of their raisings on consecutive Friday nights, July 25 and August 1, can be viewed at http://www.cupertino.org. Click on "Mary Ave. Bicycle Footbridge Webcam". A cable stayed bridge will be constructed between the towers in the coming months.

The Stevens Creek Trail Feasibility Study is at last completed. The study was reviewed by the BPAC at its regular meeting on August 20, and the committee voted to accept the study and recommend its approval. It will be reviewed at the Traffic Commission meeting (in Los Altos, the BPAC is a set up as a sub-committee of the Traffic Commission) at their 8/27 meeting.
The Redwood City Bike-Ped working group met in July and discussed possible re-striping plans for the section of the City north of downtown and east of the railroad tracks. The City will be "slurry sealing" the roads in this area and this presents an opportunity to improve bicycle access there. Many of the roads are also part of the North-South route that has been mapped, proposed, and promoted by the San Mateo committee of the SVBC. Included in the discussion were "lane-diets" (reducing the number of vehicle travel lanes from 4 to 3) which would allow the addition of bike lanes.
