Contributed by the City of San Carlos:
An update to the Holly Street US 101 Interchange Project will be presented for the first time to the public since finalizing the Project Study Report with Caltrans.
The presentation will be during the Traffic and Circulation Commission meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013 at 7 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber (600 Elm St.).
The presentation will include progress on the environmental and traffic studies to date, pedestrian over-crossing project alternatives, and a discussion on the Holly Street corridor west of the interchange.
Improvements to the Holly Street Interchange with US 101 are required in order to accommodate increased traffic generated by the Palo Alto Medical Foundation's San Carlos Center (PAMF) and other anticipated land development. The PAMF traffic report identified a need for interchange improvements to handle traffic growth.
The scope of the project includes reconfiguring the interchange to accommodate increased traffic as well as provide complete streets improvements to enhance pedestrian and bicyclist access through the interchange. Currently the project is currently working through the Caltrans Project Approval/Environmental Document Phase.
