Closing Marsh Road: The Silver Lining

Uploaded: Jun 2, 2016
Please don’t misunderstand this post as enjoying other peoples’ inconvenience. But the closure of Marsh Road provides an opportunity to study the effects of future development – much of which is under discussion in Menlo Park’s zoning and project approval processes in the coming months.

Closing Marsh Road induces a form of ‘stress testing’ of alternative routes to see the effect of more traffic. This should be looked at carefully, and measured. Those impacted should document what they observe. Feel free to post your observations as comments to this blog.

Democracy.
What is it worth to you?
