In October 2022, the Menlo Park City Council authorized installation of new all-way stops at several locations throughout Menlo Park:

-Van Buren Road and Ringwood Avenue
-Middle Avenue and San Mateo Drive (pictured)
-Gilbert Avenue and Pope Street
-Elm Street and Pope Street
-Central Avenue and Elm Street
-Laurel Avenue and Elm Street
-Pope Street/Beacon Street and Walnut Street

New stop signs and pavement markings at these intersections are planned to be installed Friday, March 3, weather permitting.

New signs will have orange flags on top for the first couple of weeks to draw driver’s attention.

Will we ever try safety measures OTHER than stop signs? Adding more and more and more stop signs do not improve safety as much as some think. Compliance goes down as people get frustrated. But more importantly there are other techniques for keeping car traffic slower and sight lines clear for cross streets (ironically hindering linear sight lines is one way to slow people down naturally) that have been proven more effective where actually tried.
