Quito Road Bridges

The City of Saratoga in cooperation with the Town of Los Gatos plan to replace two existing bridges on Quito Road near Old Adobe Road.

The design is complete, the City is proceeding with right-of-way acquisition. Construction is planned for 2017.

Public Meetings


Several public meetings (open houses) took place to inform the community about the project. One of the meetings took place on July 29, 2014. The public had the opportunity to ask questions about the project and speak with project experts about final project design, construction, and detour plans. Download the meeting flyer (PDF).

The first Quito Road Bridges Project Open House was held on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m., Joan Pisani Community Center, Arts and Crafts Room, 19655 Allendale Avenue, Saratoga, CA 95070. See the flyer (PDF).

The proposed project would replace 2 existing bridges on Quito Road on the border of the City of Saratoga and the Town of Los Gatos. Both bridges cross over San Thomas Aquino Creek - just south and north of the intersection of Quito Road and Old Adobe Road.

Construction


The current bridges were constructed in 1915 and do not meet current state design standards or seismic safety criteria for bridges. The new bridges would meet current design and seismic standards. Additionally, the existing bridges are only 23 feet wide. The new bridges would be expanded to safely accommodate vehicle and pedestrian traffic on the bridges.

During construction, Quito Road would be closed and traffic would be rerouted for approximately 6 to 12 months during the construction period. Additional information about this project is below.

The Saratoga City Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing on November 6, 2013, at 7 p.m., in the Civic Theater to consider approval of the Replacement of the Quito Road Bridges Project. The meeting is open to the public and those who wish to speak on the project will have an opportunity to do so at the meeting.
