Menlo Park Council seeks 3-street solution for Caltrain grade separation

Thanks to the numerous residents who submitted public comments in favor of 3-street solution on January 15. The Menlo Park City Council, with three newly elected members, reversed its previous preference regarding how to grade-separate the Caltrain tracks from local streets. That is, to allow pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists to pass under the railroad tracks safely while reducing traffic and associated vehicle emissions.

The previous council favored an option separating only one street, Ravenswood, with an underpass. On January 15, in a study session, the four council members present preferred to separate three streets (Ravenswood, Oak Grove and Glenwood) with a hybrid/berm, similar to the design in Belmont and San Carlos.
