Middlefield Road bikeway in North Fair Oaks
Middlefield Road in North Fair Oaks serves a dual purpose: acting as the main business district for the community with many locally owned shops and key services such as a Health Center and schools, and providing a direct route from Redwood City to Menlo Park and Atherton. The current four-lane configuration with diagonal parking and minimal traffic signals makes for an unwelcoming streetscape for people who bike and walk. SVBC is engaging in the Middlefield Road redesign study in North Fair Oaks to help transform that corridor into a safe and comfortable route for all users. We are advocating for protected bike lanes to accommodate the many people who bike on this corridor and as a tool for traffic calming and increased safety.
