The Stevens Creek Trail just keeps getting longer. Yet another extension of the Stevens Creek Trail will break ground Saturday, this time for work on a bridge across Highway 85 near Sleeper Avenue to the neighborhood behind Camino Medical Group.
The extension will add a quarter of a mile to the four-mile trail to the Bay, and increase its use south of El Camino Real by taking the trail closer to the city's Sunnyvale border. Construction is expected to be complete in March 2012.
Guests are encouraged to walk or bike to the groundbreaking event, which will take place at the Sleeper Avenue trailhead at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 5.
The $4.1 million project was paid for in part by $1.7 million in state and regional grants.
