Document Description
The project will consist of constructing a Class I Pedestrian/Bicycle Overcrossing Structure over U.S. Hwy 101 to provide a direct connection between the south side and north side of U.S. Hwy 101 in East Palo Alto. In addition to the overcrossing, sidewalk and bicycle signage and striping improvements along West Bayshore Road and a new pedestrian crossing of Newell Avenue will be added. The project would cross U.S. Hwy 101, approx. 2,100 feet south of the University Avenue overcrossing of U.S. Hwy 101, and approx. 4,500 feet north of the Oregon Expressway/Embarcadero Road overcrossing. U.S. Hwy 101 in this location is a ten-lane, 160-ft. wide highway (recently widened from eight lanes). The latitude and longitude of the project is 37.457506, - 122.13472. The frontage road on the southwest side, West Bayshore, is two lanes, while the frontage road on the northeast side, East Bayshore, is four lanes with a median to the north of the Project site, transitioning to two lanes south of the Project site. the southern ramp of the alignment will begin on the northern side of West Bayshore Road and will hug the existing sound wall before crossing the hwy. The northern ramp of the alignment will have a reverse "S" curve that will border a City owned parcel and terminate on Clarke Avenue (adjacent to the entrance of Home Depot). The project proposal also includes the relocation of the existing pylon sign that is approx. 65 feet tall, and adding a new traffic signal with bike/pedestrian crossing lights and a high-visibility crosswalk at West Bayshore and Newell Road.
