Los Altos Hills Becomes A Little Safer

The Town, VTA and Gardner Bullis School celebrate ground breaking of an off-road route improvement.


Los Altos Hills held a ground breaking ceremony Friday to celebrate the start of a $1.08 million dollar project under the Safe Routes to Schools program.

The improvement project will provide an off-road passage so school kids and pedestrians can travel safely along Fremont Road and it removes some of the unsightly utility poles that are dangerously close to the road, according to Mayor Rich Larsen. 

The project stretches along Fremont Road between Edith Avenue (south of the bridge) and Concepcion Road.

VTA partnered with the town, paying for 74 percent. Los Altos Hills paid for the remainder. 

On hand were Mayor Larsen, VTA Executive Policy Advisor Jim Lawson, Council member Ginger Summit, Council member John Radford, and former Mayor Breene Kerr.

I am delighted to see this. As a teacher at Gardner Bullis School - who rides his bicycle to school every day - I applaud the efforts of Los Altos Hills to become more bicycle friendly. Thanks very, very much!

A big "huzzah" for the cause of getting to school the old-fashioned way! I'm wondering if kids rode horses to school back in the day?
