Public Scoping Meeting on Sept. 24 for I-280/Winchester Blvd. Project
Deanna Bolio

VTA is holding a virtual public scoping meeting for the I-280/Winchester Boulevard Interchange Improvements Project this Thursday, September 24, at 6:00 pm. Community members are invited to learn more about the project and provide input on the scope and content for the environmental document.

The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), in cooperation with the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) and the City of San José, will prepare an Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/Environmental Assessment (EA) for the Interstate 280 (I-280)/Winchester Boulevard Interchange Improvements Project. The Notice of Preparation for this Project was circulated on September 8, 2020.

The Project proposes to modify the existing I-280/Winchester Boulevard interchange by constructing a new off-ramp from northbound I-280 to the intersection of Tisch Way and Hatton Street and a new direct connector ramp from northbound State Route 17 (SR17) to northbound I-280. The purpose of the Project is to improve traffic operations and reduce congestion on the local roadways, improve bicycle and pedestrian access and transit connectivity, and improve access from I-280 in the project area. The Project is needed to address congestion and delay on the freeways and local streets in the project area.
