Mary Avenue Extension
SCH Number:   2007022024
Document Type:   EIR - Draft EIR
Alternate Title:   Mary Avenue Extension Project
Project Lead Agency:   Sunnyvale, City of

Project Description
The project proposes to extend Mary Avenue from its current terminus at Almanor Avenue north, over US 101 and SR-237, to Eleventh Avenue at E Street. Currently, Mary Avenue is an approximately 5.6-mile, two- to six-lane, north-south arterial that extends north from Homestead Road in south Sunnyvale and terminates at Almanor Avenue just south of US 101. The proposed extension includes a 0.3 mile long bridge structure over the two freeways and light rail transit (LRT) tracks. North and south of the bridge, the roadway extension would be supported by embankments. The bridge structure would have four traffic lanes, a raised median, sidewalks, and bike lanes. In addition, the project includes signalized intersection improvements at the intersection of Mary Avenue and Almanor Avenue, and at the northerly connection of Mary Avenue to the Eleventh Avenue and E Street intersection.
