Adobe Creek Bike/Pedestrian Undercrossing Reopens

The Adobe Creek undercrossing re-opened on April 12 for bicycle and pedestrian traffic, three days ahead of its slated April 15 opening. Palo Alto Public Works usually closes the undercrossing during the winter due to silt and debris build-up during the rainy season.

“Crews this week removed a record amount of silt and debris due to all the rain we received so far this year,” said Roger Nguy, Public Works Manager of Maintenance Operations.

Plans are in the works to replace the flood-prone undercrossing starting in Fall of 2019. The goal is to have a new, year-round bicycle and pedestrian overcrossing over Highway 101 at Adobe Creek near the City's southern border with Mountain View. Not only would it help better link growing technology and research-based job centers with regional trails and bicycle facilities, but it would also improve access to recreation opportunities like the Baylands. The Highway 101 Pedestrian/Bike Bridge project is expected to be completed in 2020. Click here to read more about it.
