The Redwood City Bike-Ped working group met in July and discussed possible re-striping plans for the section of the City north of downtown and east of the railroad tracks. The City will be "slurry sealing" the roads in this area and this presents an opportunity to improve bicycle access there. Many of the roads are also part of the North-South route that has been mapped, proposed, and promoted by the San Mateo committee of the SVBC. Included in the discussion were "lane-diets" (reducing the number of vehicle travel lanes from 4 to 3) which would allow the addition of bike lanes. The City's staff will also be discussing the changes with the local residents in the future.
In August, the City Council approved some minor changes in re-striping of three of the major roads in Redwood Shores. For Marine World Parkway, it will get 5-ft bike lanes east of RT 101. For both Twin Dolphin and Redwood Shore Parkways, they will have their lane widths reduced from 12 to 10 feet in expectation to slow motor vehicle traffic. For various reasons, neither of these roadways have enough width to accommodate bike lanes; instead, a 4-ft shoulder will be available.
