Great Streets Rengstorff Park had a meeting with Mountain View city staff recently. Among other things, we asked when the new traffic signals on California & Escuela will be functional.
The lastest update from the City of Mountain View Public Works Department Dickson Tam –
The signal project has been on hold due to delays with PG&E’s new electrical service for the new signal system. Currently, PG&E crews are scheduled for tomorrow, 11/14, to provide the new service. The signal contractor can then complete some striping modifications at the intersection and turn on the new signal system shortly after that.
Great Streets wants to thank the city council and staff of Mountain View for their work to improve the safety of the Rengstorff Park Area.
This is a good first step to make this area safer, but more comprehensive solutions are still needed to further improve safety and accessibility. For additional information on GSRP suggestions to make both these streets safer please see GSRP California and Shoreline Road Diet and Escuela Avenue Bike Lanes.
