14 Feb El Camino Real Corridor Plan (City of Redwood City)
W-Trans completed the transportation technical analysis for the El Camino Real Corridor Plan, which evaluated the effects of the addition of one-way Class IV bike facilities along El Camino Real, and addressed conflict reductions for bicyclists at intersections. A parking utilization study was also conducted for the corridor, which helped to inform the recommendation for one-way Class IV bike facilities in-lieu of parking. Additionally, the analysis identified and assessed traffic control alternatives for existing intersections as well as the reconfiguration of select intersections along the corridor in order to enhance safety, cross-town connections, and travel time for vehicles while maintaining enhanced facilities for alternative modes. Recommendations for other spot improvements to enhance safety for pedestrians and bicyclists, and improve vehicle flow and access to transit were also identified. The project aimed to enhance bicycle, pedestrian and transit facilities, while minimizing delays to vehicles, resulting in a balanced multimodal corridor.
