Redwood City has completed the Bike & Pedestrian Safety Improvement Study and will be presenting the conceptual designs and final report to the City Council on February 25, 2019. If you support protected bike lanes on El Camino Real in Redwood City, please attend the meeting or email Council to express your love for this project.

 

The Bike & Pedestrian Safety Improvement Study was a yearlong study funded by a Caltrans grant that applied the El Camino Real Corridor Plan streetscape improvements to the southern end of El Camino Real (from Maple to Charter Street). The study includes conceptual designs for protected bike lanes, crosswalks, street crossings, and bus stops. While the City Council will not be making final decisions on changes to be made on February 25 and additional community feedback will be sought in future phases, the study helps the City seek grant funding and identify next steps for making the vision become a reality.

 

This is a very important meeting for Council to hear positive feedback on their plan to add bike lanes and make other improvements to El Camino Real. There may be critics of the project there and we want to make sure that council hears supporters as well. Please let Emma@bikesiliconvalley.org know if you are able to make it. If you are unable to make it, you can also email Council at council@redwoodcity.org to show your support for this project.
