Hedding Street Bikeway to be discussed

New 3rd St. Bike Lane looking
 north from San Fernando St.
 Just as the City of San Jose finishes up on the wonderful new bike lanes on 3rd, 4th, 10th, and 11th Streets as well as Almaden Blvd., the Department of Transportation is arranging a public meeting to discuss a new bikeway that will run the length of Hedding Street.

The 4.3 mile route will run along Hedding St. and N. Winchester at the San Jose City line to the 101 Freeway where Hedding becomes Berryesa Rd. The southwest portion is just north of Valley Fair and Santana Row Shopping Centers. It will continue past O'Conner Hospital, just north of the Municipal Rose Garden, Bellarmine College Prep, Guadalupe River Park, County Civic Center, Raymond Bernal Jr. Park, the Luna Park Business District, Bankesto Park, and Watson Park.

City staff will update the plans to remove one travel lane and on-street parking and to add dedicated bike lanes on Hedding St. between Guadalupe River Trail and N. 17th St.

Meeting Date: Thursday, August 2, 2012
Time 6:00 PM
Location: Joyce Ellington Library, Community Room
               491 East Empire Street
