The City of Cupertino is proud to announce that the McClellan Road Separated Bikeway Project, Phase 2, has been named Project of the Year by the Silicon Valley Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA). The project won in the “under $2 million” category.
“The safety of our community remains the City Council’s top priority,” Mayor Darcy Paul said. “The installation of this 3,500-foot-long protected bikeway creates a safer environment for our students, families and residents, particularly those who bike to school and work.
“Working with our Public Works Department, which completed this project in less than a year from start of design to completion of construction, the City Council will continue to adhere to Cupertino values and ensure that safe infrastructure is built in an efficient manner.”
The project, completed last year, included the construction of separated bike lanes along McClellan Road between Stelling Road and De Anza Boulevard, and along Pacifica Drive between De Anza Boulevard and Torre Avenue. The project created an on-street bike lane that physically separates motor vehicles and bicyclists using curbs and mountable raised strips.
“The McClellan Road Separated Bikeways Project implemented much needed accommodations to provide safe alternatives to vehicular travel on a primary east-west connector which connects City Hall, the library, and several schools,” said Daniel Gonzales, APWA Silicon Valley Chapter President. “The project reinforces the City’s commitment to promotion of mode shift, a key step in combating climate change.”
