Mountain View – October 14, 2014 –  Mountain View is asking residents to propose improvements at major intersections after at least a half-dozen pedestrian fatalities since 2011 prompted widespread community calls for change….

Addressing a dangerous pedestrian crossing at Shoreline Boulevard and California Street is one community demand. Reducing the number of vehicle lanes on California Street to allow more space for bicyclists is another.

“Complete streets are streets that are accessible, convenient and safe for everybody,” said Ria Hutabarat Lo, a Nelson\Nygaard consultant. “We’re here to really investigate the issues, identify where those key issues are, and try to come up with some design concepts to remedy those issues.”
