Willow Glen Trestle Deemed “Not Historic”

According to this article by Sal Pizarro of the San Jose Mercury News, a massive environmental impact report indicates that the old train trestle in northern Willow Glen is not historic and therefore not worthy of protection/preservation, This would seem to pave the way (so to speak) for the city to remove the bridge and replace it with a new concrete bridge that was approved a while back.

The location is important because it represents a major “break” in the Los Gatos Creek Trail. Preservationists want the city to renovate the bridge and use it to link the trail, while others want the city to be able to proceed with an already-approved plan to replace it with a concrete bridge.

You can review the EIR here. There is a public meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Willow Glen Community Center, 2175 Lincoln Ave., to begin accepting public comments on the EIR. Comments will be accepted until March 13.
