San Tomas widening a plus for cars, bikes, pedestrians

Here’s the plan for the next stretch of the San Tomas Aquino Creek Spur Trail, according to the City of Santa Clara. It will extend from El Camino Real to Homestead Road along the San Tomas Expressway.

The County of Santa Clara will be in charge of this roadwork, as it will be widening the expressway from three to four lanes each direction. The trail continues on the west side of the expressway.

A sidewalk will be constructed on the east side of the expressway, which explains why trees here are signed for removal. Trees will be removed on both sides of the expressway for the widening.

Those trees have been a headache, dropping needles and pine cones and plugging drains during heavy rain. I’ve also seen them fall into the road.

Construction starts next year around June-July.

    Thanks for the update. I think you meant to write “San Tomas Expressway” at the end of the first paragraph. (There is a “San Tomas Aquino Road” in Santa Clara, but that’s no the road you meant.)
