This week, SamTrans released draft recommendations that would address traffic congestion and create new mobility alternatives along the Dumbarton Corridor between Alameda County and San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The recommendations are available in the draft report
on the SamTrans website and were presented during community meetings Aug. 15 in Union City and Aug. 16 in East Palo Alto. SamTrans will also be hosting other opportunities for input, including a presentation to the Menlo Park City Council Aug. 22, 2017. Other community input meetings are occurring throughout August and September; comments are being accepted through the end of September. More information is available on the SamTrans website
The study evaluated a wide range of transportation alternatives, and recommends operations and infrastructure improvements that would be phased in over time on the highway bridge, its approaches and the Dumbarton Rail Bridge. The study was a collaborative project that enlisted the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, Alameda County Transportation Commission, AC Transit and Facebook as partners, as well as the cities in the corridor. The SamTrans board of directors will receive a final report including public feedback from the hearings for their consideration in October.
