Midtown Connector Project


The Matadero Creek Trail project proposes a new 1.3 mile recreational facility along the levies and access roads of Matadero Creek. The linkage would provide a continuous east-west Class I – Multi-Use Trail directly through the center of Palo Alto with connections to the  Midtown Shopping  District, public schools, and city parks.

The proposed trail helps to implement the Palo Alto Bay-to-Ridge Trail Program encouraging use of the Bay Lands and Foothills while supporting Safe Routes to School operations.

The project is currently proposed in the FY2014 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) and will begin immediately in the Fall 2013 following a Request for Proposals (RFP) solicitation process to bring on a consultant team to initiate a Feasibility Study for the project.
