San Lorenzo Valley / Highway 9 Corridor Plan

Would you walk and bike on Highway 9 if it were safer? The Regional Transportation Commission has drafted a plan to do just that. They're proposing improvements on the section of Highway 9 that connects the towns of Felton, Ben Lomond, Brookdale, and Boulder Creek and parallel and connecting streets, roadways, and paths.

The following list is the SLV / Hwy 9 Corridor Plan identified projects, each with potential variations. 

  1. Improved bicycle and pedestrian connection – Henry Cowell State Park to Felton
  2. More organized parking/frontage in downtown Felton
  3. Bicycle and pedestrian access at Graham Hill Road intersection
  4. Bicycle and pedestrian connection to SLV schools from central Felton
  5. Transit and sidewalk access improvements SLV school entrance to Fall Creek Drive
  6. Improved bicycle and pedestrian connection from schools north to El Solyo Heights Drive
  7. Crossing and Pedestrian Improvements at/to Mill Street/Highway 9 in Ben Lomond 
  8. Pathway on SW side of SR 9 from Quality Inn/bridge south to Mill Street in Ben Lomond
  9. Add crosswalk bulb-outs in downtown Boulder Creek 
  10. Sidewalk seating and storefront improvements in downtown Boulder Creek
