Public Meeting on I-880/I-280/Stevens Creek Interchange This Wednesday

July 19th, 2009 by John Vink

A community meeting to discuss the I880/I280/Stevens Creek Boulevard/Winchester Improvements Project will be held on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at the Amber Drive School, 3500 Amber Drive, San Jose.

Presented by the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA), San Jose Department of Transportation, and the San Jose Redevelopment Agency, the meeting will begin at 6:15 with a review of the maps and drawings of the proposed changes, followed by presentation and commentary, general Q & A, and drawing specific discussions.

The project proposes to improve traffic flow, safety and access between the Interstate 280 and Interstate 880 freeway corridors near Stevens Creek Boulevard, including modifications to the freeway-to-freeway intersection of State Route 17/I-280/I-880 freeway interchange, as well as the adjacent interchanges at I-880/Stevens Creek Boulevard and I-280/Winchester Boulevard. Of particular interest to South Winchester Boulevard residents will be the new freeway access by constructing a new northbound I-280 off-ramp at Winchester Boulevard.
