Caltrans will hold an open house tonight (Sept. 12) for the public to provide feedback on the proposed partial cloverleaf redesign of the U.S. 101-Willow Road interchange.
The redesign, with an estimated cost of $42.5 million, includes bike lanes and pedestrian walkways on the overpass, separated from vehicle traffic by a concrete barrier, as well as two-lane on- and off-ramps designed to reduce traffic backups. Additional bike lanes would be next to vehicle lanes on the 162-foot-wide overpass structure. Traffic would also stop at signal lights before entering Willow Road.
Map displays will be on view, along with comment cards for input on the draft environmental impact report. The report may be reviewed online, or at the Menlo Park public library at 800 Alma St. or the East Palo Alto public library at 2415 University Ave.
Tonight's open house will start at 6 p.m. in council chambers at East Palo Alto's City Hall, located at 2415 University Ave.
