Urgent neighborhood survey on Chilco Street median installation

Posted on September 27, 2021 at 2:45 pm by Clay Curtin

As part of the final phase of Chilco Street improvements, the City, in coordination with Facebook, will install five median islands. These would be in the section of Chilco that parallels the railroad tracks. The median islands narrow the traffic lanes to slow down traffic, but still provide a clear travel path for emergency vehicles.

Menlo Park seeks feedback from Belle Haven residents regarding three options for construction. Each has different traffic impacts and costs. Be on the lookout, as this survey will be sent via text and email to Belle Haven residents. The survey will be open through September 30, 2021.

After the medians are installed, Chilco Street will be slurry sealed, and fresh striping and pavement markings will be applied. Construction is anticipated to be completed in November, when the street will fully reopen to the public.
