Save the date! Public meetings will be held on Wednesday, March 27 at Bascom Community Center and March 28 at Farnham Elementary School. These will be open-house style public meetings with preferred Complete Street Corridor designs on display for the public to review and provide feedback directly to the project team.
The Bascom Corridor Complete Streets Study is a joint project with the City of San Jose, City of Campbell, and the County of Santa Clara. This study evaluates 5.9 miles of Bascom Avenue from I-880 near the Bascom-Forest and Rose Garden neighborhoods in San Jose, past Valley Medical Center, the Pruneyard in Campbell, and down to the Farnham and Ponderosa neighborhoods near SR-85. The study area includes unincorporated areas of Santa Clara County along the corridor.
The purpose of this multi-jurisdictional planning study is to identify opportunities along Bascom Avenue to demonstrate and advance Complete Streets improvements. The study will evaluate transit travel times, signal coordination, signal timing modifications, multimodal access, safety, and connectivity. VTA bus routes 61 and 62 serve the corridor, and VTA's Mountain View-Winchester light rail line and Los Gatos Creek Trail cross Bascom Avenue near Southwest Expressway.
The VTA project team reviewed the community input from past public meetings and online survey feedback to help develop the preferred design. The open-house meetings will provide an opportunity for you to review the preferred design and provide additional input to inform the final plan.
VTA will use constructive feedback to help develop a final complete streets plan. The plan will be presented to VTA committees in Summer 2019, and to the VTA Board of Directors in Fall 2019 for their consideration. The designs will be available online after scheduled community meetings.
