30 Jun El Camino Real Corridor Study – City of Menlo Park
W-Trans completed the El Camino Real Corridor Study which provided an evaluation of potential transportation and safety improvements to El Camino Real, making it safer and more efficient to move along and across El Camino within the City Limits of Menlo Park for all modes of travel. The study identified potential reconfiguration alternatives, and evaluated the feasibility and potential impacts (adverse and beneficial) to improve multi-modal transportation along the corridor. Ultimately, the project aimed to achieve the goals of balanced capacity, bicyclist and pedestrian connectivity, transit access, parking, and safety as outlined in the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan as well as the Grand Boulevard Initiative. Alternatives included both striped buffered bike lanes and separated bike lanes with protected intersection design at key locations.
