Oct. 4 meeting set for Ravenswood Avenue railroad crossing study

Posted on October 1, 2016 at 4:26 pm by Clay Curtin

On Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, at 6:30 p.m. at the Menlo Church Social Hall in downtown Menlo Park at 700-B Chestnut Lane, the community will have an opportunity to give input on the study to separate Ravenswood Avenue from the Caltrain railroad tracks. The project is evaluating 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 City has hired a consultant team to perform the evaluation and is hosting a series of three community meetings to gather feedback. Since the first community meeting, the team has been refining the alternatives and assembling more detailed information to better illustrate the options. Exhibits will be presented and the community will be asked to provide input to continue to refine the alternatives.

The project team will also be attending a series of Commission and City Council meetings to present the community’s feedback and resulting detailed alternatives. The project will allow the City Council to identify a recommended alternative and the next steps to advance the grade separation efforts.
