A cyclist rides across Homestead Road in Cupertino. The first Homestead Safe Routes to School community engagement meeting, held Nov. 26, gauged local residents’ opinions on how to improve the Homestead Road corridor. The thruway stretches from the intersection of Grant Road and Foothill Expressway in Los Altos to the intersection of Homestead Road, Hollenbeck Avenue and North Stelling Road in Cupertino.

With the first Homestead Road Safe Routes to School community meeting held last month and the next one set for January, the project to improve the thruway for cyclists and pedestrians is moving forward.
