When Will Menlo Park Fix El Camino Real?
Original post made by POGO, Woodside: other, on Dec 20, 2011
I can drive from the six miles from Ralston Avenue in Belmont to the southern end of Atherton in about 15 minutes... but the next mile in Menlo Park will often take me 30 minutes! It is especially bad during rush hour and with the recent construction, it is nothing short of exasperating.
With the exception of Menlo Park, ECR is six lanes through the majority of the Peninsula. But in Menlo Park, we "bottle neck" down to four lanes. It successfully raises the blood pressure of drivers and lowers the gas mileage for cars for thousands of motorists every single day.
Isn't it about time that Menlo Park provided a reasonable thoroughfare for the community?
