El Camino Real Streetscape Improvements
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The City of Mountain View proposes to make various streetscape improvements throughout the City’s four-mile El Camino Real corridor. The proposed improvements include adding Class IV protected bikeway facilities via parking removal between Rengstorff Avenue and Sylvan Avenue; adding curb extension and/or other pedestrian crossing enhancements at up to 32 intersections; providing other pedestrian crossing enhancements such as high-visibility crosswalk markings, advanced stop bars, and bicycle detection at intersections; and installing new conduit across El Camino Real and constructing three new signalized crossing installations at Pettis Avenue, Bonita Avenue, and Crestview Drive. All improvements would occur within the existing right-of-way. Minor curb line modifications may be required to create consistent curb lines for the proposed bicycle facilities. The proposed streetscape improvements would be incorporated into Caltrans’ El Camino Real repaving and ADA ramp installation project. The project would be overseen and implemented by Caltrans.

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Section 15301, Existing Facilties, Section 15302. Replacement or Reconstruction, Section 15303. New Construction
Reasons for Exemption
The project would not require right-of-way acquisition and would not substantially alter existing circulation patterns. The project would not introduce a new use to the El Camino Real corridor and would result in negligible to no expansion of existing uses along the roadway. Per section 15300.2 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines, it has been determined that the project is not located on a hazardous waste site, does not contain environmental resources of hazardous or critical concern, would not result in a significant impact due to unusual circumstances, damage scenic resources, affect a historic resource, or result in a cumulative impact. For these reasons and those stated above, the project is exempt from the provisions of CEQA.
