Content having to do with SantaCruz/Alameda Corridor

October 29, 2019
Our community, each of us, needs to take action to solve a long standing safety issue at the Palo Alto Way crosswalk on Santa Cruz Ave.   County has done virtually nothing and it seems they are happy to continue that mindset for a few more years.    Our community can make it clear to County management that this is not acceptable and that safety action is required now.

Our section of Alameda, at its narrowest, has a width of 64', curb to curb.  Additionally, there are sidewalks and pathways that represent an additional 5' to 10' width.   This  64' road width provides ample room for parking on both sides, buffered bike lanes, a center left turn/merge lane, and a traffic lane each direction.

Using FHWA and several other cost estimation sources, a round number for installing sidewalks in our area is about $20/sq.ft. A very rough measurement for the west side of Alameda, from Aston to Camp Bello, is 1,600 linear ft.   The east sidewalks, from Liberty Park to the Y intersection, is about 1,270 linear ft.

The Road reconfiguration is actually quite inexpensive and straight forward, because basically it is a matter of removing the current pavement markings and replacing with marked lanes for the new 3 lanes.
