About the Project

The Carmen Road Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridge, a priority project in the 2016 Cupertino Bicycle Transportation Plan, is a grade-separated structure envisioned to provide a connection for pedestrians and bicyclists between the neighborhoods north and south of Stevens Creek Boulevard, between Foothill Boulevard and Phar Lap Drive. The bridge would continue the existing alignment of Carmen Road across Stevens Creek Boulevard, allowing for easy and safe access to and from residences, schools, parks and recreation centers. It also would create a safer bicycle and walking route to Stevens Creek Elementary School, and provide an alternate crossing to get to Kennedy Middle School and Monta Vista High School. Please take our short survey

Staff has retained the services of Mott MacDonald to develop a feasibility study for the Carmen Road Pedestrian/Bicycle Bridge. The feasibility study process began in November 2018 and is anticipated to continue through Spring 2019. It will include community engagement/stakeholder outreach and will culminate in a report identifying potentially suitable bridge structure types, cost estimates, as well as address issues identified during the community outreach process. No funding or budget has currently been identified beyond the feasibility study phase.

Community Outreach

At this early stage in the feasibility study, the City invites you to share your thoughts about the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge. Please take our short survey and share your ideas, comments, and questions about this potential crossing. The survey will be open until Thursday, January 31, 2019.
