You are invited to attend a (final) public workshop for the Ralston Avenue Corridor Study!
What is the study?
The purpose of the study is to determine the adequacy of the corridor for multi-modal use including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit, and vehicles under existing and future conditions, and to develop context sensitive transportation alternatives to improve multi-modal use along the corridor.
Preliminary Design Concepts
The consultants have held 3 community meetings since last April and presented the draft plan to City Council last month. The plan has some good improvements filling bike lane gaps between South Rd. and Alameda de las Pulgas, but does nothing to address Ralston west of Alameda de las Pulgas and funnels people who bike onto parallel routes from City Hall to east of the Caltrain station. City Council needs to hear your concerns about these modifications and how it will affect you.
The purpose of this sixth community engagement meeting is to gather additional public feedback on the recommended conceptual improvements. The Open House will be open to all, with an interactive format to entertain comments about the problem areas, and proposed conceptual improvements ideas generated based on now the eighteen month long community engagement process, technical analysis and studies. Interactive stations will be available throughout the evening. Community members are encouraged to drop in at a time convenient for them.

About Ralston Avenue
Ralston Avenue is an east-west divided arterial and a major thoroughfare that extends from State Route 92 in the west to U.S. Highway 101 in the east. The cross section varies from four lanes at its western end to two lanes at/near Alameda De Las Pulgas; and, again widens back to four lanes near Twin Pines Park and City Hall. Ralston Avenue is a unique and distinctive corridor in the region. This distinctive character of Ralston Avenue is due to the varying degrees of urban setting, cross-section and topography, which can be experienced as one travels through the corridor.
