New Singleton Bridge crossing Coyote Creek open to the public 

The Singleton Bridge crossing Coyote Creek is now open!  

The new Singleton Bridge replaces a road and trail that previously crossed the creek bed with two small pipes (shown in the image below). While the pipes allowed for water to pass, they were a barrier to fish swimming upstream and impeded fish migration for decades. Thanks to the efforts of the City of San Jose who constructed the project through a partnership with Valley Water, pedestrians and cyclists now have safe access across the creek, and migrating fish have a clear pathway to their destination.

Through Valley Water’s Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program, the City of San Jose received $1 million to complete the bridge and habitat restoration project. The Safe, Clean Water Program provides approximately $47 million annually for local projects to deliver safe, clean water, natural flood protection, and environmental stewardship to all the communities Valley Water serves in Santa Clara County.
