The Belle Haven neighborhood is defined as the area bounded by Willow Road on the East, the Dumbarton Rail Corridor on the north, and US 101 on the South.
The City is conducting a traffic calming study to address cut-through traffic concerns in the Belle Haven neighborhood through the use of traffic calming measures.
Typically, cut-through traffic refers to trips generated outside of a pre-defined area and traveling through to a destination outside of the area. To counter this type of driving behavior, traffic calming measures such as education, enforcement, and physical structures are often recommended and implemented as possible solutions.
Due to increased congestion on Bayfront Expressway and Willow Road, the Belle Haven neighborhood is experiencing increased cut-through traffic. As part of its Campus Expansion project approvals, Facebook is required to fund a neighborhood traffic calming plan for the Belle Haven neighborhood to reduce cut-through traffic.
The City is meeting with the community to seek feedback in anticipation of developing a scope of work and starting work in summer 2017.
