Updated Garwood Way opens near the Springline development

by Contributed Content on August 20, 2022

Garwood Way between Oak Grove Avenue and Glenwood Avenue is now accessible and open for motorists and pedestrians. The updated Garwood Way is part of the Springline project and includes sidewalks, curb/gutter, bio-retention basins, underground utilities, landscape and irrigation, street lights, signage and pavement markings.

The new Garwood Way is a part of the overall project under final inspection and acceptance processing. The traffic median island upgrades at Oak Grove Avenue and Garwood Way and Merrill Street will improve traffic safety at the intersection and nearby railroad crossing.

For those who’re vague about location, this link completes a much-needed low-speed passage just east of El Camino Real and immediately west of the railroad tracks, all the way from Ravenswood to Encinal. Garwood south of Glenwood has all my life been a short cul-de-sac hugging the railroad tracks, just where a passage would be very handy, and I always thought “Pity about that.”

It would be nice to imagine extending this northwards for pedestrians/bicyclists via Felton Drive, Holbrook Palmer Park, McCormick Lane, Lloyden Drive, Belleau Avenue, and Fairfax Avenue, reaching almost to Redwood City, but that would require Atherton’s cooperation, which is unlikely in the extreme.
