Concept rendering of parkway drive & Dahlia
The City operates transit buses on the Parkway Drive between Fineview Street and Magnolia Street as part of its Orange Route and Yellow Route services. Typical headway on city operated transit routes is 50 minutes. There are no improved bus stops on the corridor although some stops feature a typical post-mounted bus blade sign.
The project corridor is developed with 5-foot wide sidewalks on both sides. Curb ramps are typically one way. Corridor sidewalks and curb ramps are not considered ADA-compliant, as there are a number of narrow points created by utility conflicts and curb ramps are not bidirectional. The overall condition of the sidewalk could be considered ‘fair’.
Curbside parking is permitted on both sides of the street along the project corridor. The only parking restrictions are on Thursdays when street sweeping occurs on both sides of the corridor. In addition, a short zone of 20-minute restricted parking is located in front of Mountain View High School. No parking ‘red curb’ areas are present along the corridor near intersections and adjacent to fire hydrant locations.
There are no existing bicycle facilities on the project corridor. Crosswalks are located at some of the intersections along the corridor, primarily at 4-way intersections, while many of the T-intersections are lacking crosswalks. Most crosswalks are not up to current standard and should be upgraded to the ‘continental crosswalk’ style.
