What about the three blocks from Encinal to Watkins - they're in Menlo Park on El Camino and there are major pedestrian safety issues in those three blocks considering the number of folks hit crossing ECR. And the only access to Stone Pine, Buckthorn, Forest and Spruce streets is via ECR.

Sandy - please try to find out why that area is excluded from the study. Thanks.

The plan from a big business/ local politician group calling itself the GRAND BOULEVARD TASK FORCE is to slow traffic on El Camino and then seize the center lane in each direction for BUSES ONLY. This make-believe "study" is part of a larger scam. Bus-only lanes are already being established in San Jose on the same bus line.
