The City of Mountain View proposes to construct a pedestrian and bicycle overcrossing of Moffett Boulevard on the Stevens Creek Trail. The overcrossing would provide an alternative to the existing trail crossing of Moffett Boulevard, reducing conflicts between cyclists and motor vehicles exiting from northbound SR 85 and turning right onto Moffett Boulevard. To fulfill the goals and policies of the 1992 Mountain View General Plan, the City Public Works Department developed the Mountain View Bicycle Transportation Plan in 2003. The proposed project was identified in this plan and was ranked as second highest priority for city funding.
The new overcrossing will consist of a steel truss bridge with three supports and two concrete abutments with concrete retaining walls supporting ramps for new asphalt trail sections on both ends. The ramps will rise at a maximum slope of 4.9% to a bridge that will span approximately 146 meters. The bridge will provide 5.2 meters of vertical clearance over the State Route 85 off ramp and 5.1 meters minimum vertical clearance over Moffett Boulevard. The trail will begin to climb above the existing ground level approximately 183 meters to the south of Moffett Boulevard and return to ground level approximately 152 meters on the north side of Moffett Boulevard adjacent to the existing pedestrian trail.
