The Monterey Corridor Community-Based Transportation Plan (CBTP) focuses on improving mobility options along Monterey Road and within designated project boundaries along Alma Avenue to the north, and Blossom Hill to the south. This corridor area is approximately 5.8 miles long.
Following a survey and two community workshops last fall, and in collaboration with the project’s Steering Committee, VTA, and partner agency City of San Jose Department of Transportation held two community workshops in May. One was in-person, and one was virtual. The purpose was to share comments and recommendations received from the community last fall, and how they have been incorporated into a draft report.
The draft report is based on existing transportation plans and studies relevant to the Monterey Road Corridor. It incorporates community input focused on improving safety within the study area and creating a connected network for all modes of travel. Attendees at the workshops in May provided additional recommendations for consideration in the final report.
