Middle Avenue Complete Street project meeting scheduled for March 3

by Contributed Content on February 27, 2022

The Middle Avenue Complete Street project proposes bicycle and pedestrian improvements along the entire length of Middle Avenue between El Camino Real and Olive Street.

The project will provide solutions that enhance safety of all users, especially pedestrians and bicyclists, reduce vehicle speed, and improve connectivity to schools, parks, grocery stores, downtown and residential neighborhoods.

Join the City of Menlo Park on Thursday, March 3, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm to hear more about the project, provide input before design begins, get answers to your questions and see local traffic calming examples.

Two things:
1. Continuous sidewalk for pedestrians along MIddle from Olive to El Camino on BOTH sides not just one side.
2. Stop sign or something to that extent at San Mateo Dr. so bicyclists can cross safer to ride towards the bike bridge. Maybe add flashing signs at pedestrian crossing.

Agree with those Two Things previously mentioned.

Distinctive bike lanes. Currently, I’ve witnessed non-resident cars driving in the bike lane as though it was a 4 lane road.

Flashing crosswalk at Arbor Road allows for crossing safely to/from the Lyle park.

Distinctive turning lane and bike lane at Olive with no parking allowed within it on Middle.

I live on Hobart, between Santa Cruz and Middle. Trying to make a left turn onto Middle from Hobart when cars are parked on Middle close to this intersection is dangerous because traffic going west on Middle cannot be seen well enough for safety unless you inch out into the bike lane. The traffic is still fast before it brakes for Olive. Turning right from Hobart is also dangerous if cars park too close to the intersection. Plus it’s hard to see the children bicycling when those cars are there.
