Carlo Street off-ramp opening
Submitted By Leslie Stobbe
Mayor Robert Livengood and Councilors Pete McHugh, Althea Polanski, Debbie Giordano and Armando Gomez will attend the Carlo Street off-ramp ribbon-cutting event, ceremonial drive and car show. The Milpitas Historical Society will lead the ceremonial drive with its 1964 Ford Galaxy police car.
The Mayor will provide opening remarks on Carlo Street (facing Main Street.) before cutting the ribbon on the off-ramp (facing Calaveras Boulevard.). Classic cars owned by Milpitas residents will be the first to use the off-ramp as the procession drives eastbound on SR237 to enter the off-ramp. For public safety during the event, the off-ramp will remain closed until approximately 2.30 p.m. Drivers will travel around the block to park along the closed portion of Carlo Street. In case of rain the ceremonial drive will occur but the show may be cancelled.
Free parking is available at the Midtown Garage, next to Milpitas Public Library on N. Main Street. Attendees should allow enough time to park and walk south on Main Street to Carlo Street.
The City of Milpitas Redevelopment Agency used savings from the N. Main St. Streetscape Project to fund the new off-ramp at a cost of $1.5M. Construction began in late July 2009 and was completed in late January 2010. This project converted the Carlo Street on-ramp to eastbound Calaveras Boulevard (SR237) into an off-ramp at Carlo Street. that offers direct access to the Midtown District.
