This just in from Caltrans Bicycle Coordinator Ina Gerhard:
- "Good news on the status of improvements along SR 9: The Office of Traffic Safety just got Caltrans HQ's approval for funding to pave the shoulders at 61 locations along the section of SR 9 between Highway 35 and Saratoga. Now the next step is to prepare a project study report in order to get the project programmed."
We will not see the paving for a while, but getting the funding is the first step. SVBC has been trying to improve the bicycle accessibility on SR 9 for some time, and would like to thank our friends in Caltrans, VTA, and the community.
