Mountain View residents who bike, run, or walk to work may have a quicker commute in 2012. In October, the Mountain View City Council approved a contract to begin construction on the project to extend Permanente Creek Trail to Old Middlefield Way. Construction will start in December and is expected to be finished in early 2012.
The project plan includes building a crossover above Highway 101 that can accommodate both pedestrian and bicycle traffic. They also plan to construct a tunnel beneath Old Middlefield Way as part of the extension.
If you have any questions or concerns about the project, contact the Public Works Department at (650) 903-6311.
