Construction at Mathilda Ave, Highways 237 and 101

The Valley Transportation Agency (VTA) has begun construction to reconfigure the US 101 and SR 237 interchanges with Mathilda Avenue in a project coordinated with the City of Sunnyvale and Caltrans.

The project aims to reduce congestion on Mathilda Avenue; improve mobility for pedestrians, bicycles and transit; and provide better access to local destinations throughout the City of Sunnyvale.

Improvements include:

  • Widening Mathilda Avenue to provide three lanes in each direction
  • Including dedicated bike lanes and continuous sidewalks for pedestrians along Mathilda Avenue
  • Providing a new multi-purpose trail along Moffett Park Drive that connects to the existing pedestrian overcrossing at Borregas Avenue and extends to Innovation Way

Construction begins in mid-February and is expected to be completed sometime in 2020.

What to expect

Construction will have short-term impacts on the area around the project, including:

  • Noise from heavy construction equipment; dust
  • Closures and detours of lanes and sidewalks
  • Temporary striping and lane shifts
  • Tree removal, tree planting and landscaping
  • Temporary bus stop closures
