Kennedy Road serves as an important connection between many destinations along Los Gatos Boulevard with the residential area along Kennedy Road. It is designated as a Walk and Roll to School Suggested Route and many students walk and bike to school and many residents also use the street.
There is no sidewalk on either side of Kennedy Road so pedestrians have to walk along roadway next to moving vehicles. The street is busy with traffic during the busy hours. The Town has received many complaints about the unsafe conditions, especially for the youth, the elderly and people with mobility limitations.

The Town is considering options to improve this street to provide a safer environment for all. We are looking into several design options to include sidewalks and striped bike lanes. The goal is to provide safe facilities for people who walk and bike.
We encourage interested parties to subscribe to the “NOTIFY ME” service located on the left hand side of this page. Those who are enrolled in the Notify Me service will receive either a text message or e-mail each time there is new information posted to the project page.
Any questions regarding the project design can be referred to the Town Engineer, Lisa Petersen, at (408) 399-5773 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
