The Facebook EIR DOES call for mitigation.
"7. Marsh Rd and
D LOS becomes E or F or 4.0 second increase to critical worst
approach if LOS is currently E or F"
"The proposed mitigation measures for the intersection of Marsh Road and
Middlefield Road include an additional southbound left turn lane and restriping
an additional eastbound receiving lane. The improvements would require
potential additional right of way, widening the edge of pavement for the
southbound direction of traffic into the existing landscape buffer, signing and
striping improvements, and relocation of utility poles and traffic signal poles
along the west side of Middlefield Road.
Prior to the Development Agreement approval, the Project Sponsor shall
prepare an updated construction cost estimate for the proposed mitigation
measures at the intersection of Marsh Road and Middlefield Road for review
and approval of the Public Works Director. Within 90 days of the effective
date of the Development Agreement for the East Campus, the Project Sponsor
shall provide a bond for the improvements in the amount equal to the Projectís
fair share contribution of the estimated construction cost for the intersection
improvements plus a 30 percent contingency. The Projectís fair share
contribution is estimated to be 30.4 percent."
The Gateway EIR also noted an impact which the City of Menlo Park simply ignored.
