Community meetings planned for Ravenswood Avenue railroad crossing

Posted on April 23, 2016 at 8:17 pm by Clay Curtin

On Monday, May 2, 2016, members of the Menlo Park community will have an opportunity to give input on the study to separate Ravenswood Avenue from the Caltrain railroad tracks. The first of three community meetings is set for Monday, May 2, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. in the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center’s Oak Room. 

The project will evaluate the feasibility of replacing the existing at-grade crossing of the Caltrain tracks at Ravenswood Avenue and possibly at Oak Grove, Glenwood and Encinal Avenues with grade separations. 

The goals of the project include reducing traffic congestion, maintaining local access as much as feasible, and improve safety for all modes of travel at the railroad crossing. The project will allow the City Council to identify a recommended alternative and identify next steps to advance the grade separation efforts.
