Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), in cooperation with the City of San Jose and California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), proposes to improve traffic operations, safety, and enhance access for pedestrians and bicyclists in the project area.

Objectives

The purpose of this project is to:

Enhance the transportation network within the project area to accommodate planned growth as anticipated under the adopted Envision San Jose 2040 General Plan.
• Improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities in the project area.
• Improve safety and traffic operations at the on- and off-ramps and mainline of US 101 within the project limits.
• Improve access to/from the Mineta San Jose International Airport

Project Features

Proposed improvements include:

  • Construct an overcrossing above US 101 that would connect Zanker Road on the north with 4th Street and Skyport Drive on the south.

  • Replace existing ramps on northbound US 101 at Old Bayshore Highway and Brokaw Road with new ramps at Bering Drive.
  • Incorporate bicycle and pedestrian facilities into the design.
