Story-Keyes Complete Streets Study

In early 2016, VTA initiated a new component of its Complete Streets Program by beginning a series of corridor studies to implement Complete Streets elements along selected roadways in Santa Clara County. This planning effort is a partnership between VTA and its Member Agencies to transform select roadways into high-quality, multimodal streets that prioritize bicycle, pedestrian and transit travel while still serving motorists.

In early 2016, VTA initiated a new component of its Complete Streets Program by beginning a series of corridor studies to implement Complete Streets elements along selected roadways in Santa Clara County. This planning effort is a partnership between VTA and its Member Agencies to transform select roadways into high-quality, multimodal streets that prioritize bicycle, pedestrian and transit travel while still serving motorists.

The Story-Keyes Corridor Complete Streets Study, a joint project with the City of San Jose, evaluates 4 miles of Calle Willow, Story Road, and Keyes Street from SR-87 to Capitol Expressway. The purpose of this planning study is to identify opportunities 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 route 25 runs on Story-Keyes, while routes 66, 68, 72, and 73 intersect it. VTA's Alum Rock-Santa Teresa line is less than a mile north of the Story Road Capitol Avenue intersection. 

Through a collaborative effort with the general public, local, regional and state stakeholders, the study identified the below transportation improvements and developed an implementation plan for the corridor that will promote mobility and connectivity, enhance safety and security, address pedestrian and bicycle issues, support economic vitality and sustainability, and is sensitive to the environment and community values.
