Hi Ms. Eisenberg,

Thank you for your message and for the feedback about Oak Grove at Maloney Lane. We will take a look at the intersection in the weeks after the New Year (when travel patterns and behavior is typical) to see if there are any changes recommended here.

Thanks and happy holidays,


Nicole H. Nagaya, PE
Transportation Manager
City of Menlo Park

City Hall will be closed starting Friday, December 23, 2016 for the holidays. We will reopen Monday, January 2, 2017. I will be also out of the office until Monday, January 9, 2017.

Hello Ann,

Thank you for your email. Alex, would you please let us know how we can make this a safer crossing? Perhaps implementing suggestions with better signage.

Best regards,

Dear City Council Members:

I live in downtown Menlo Park off of Hoover Street, near Oak Grove. I love where I live because I can walk everywhere.

I've become very concerned about cars making left hand turns from Oak Grove (West of El Camino) onto Maloney Lane (just before the post office and Piccolo Restaurant). The dividing line at this turn is a double yellow line, but cars turn anyway. Not only do they often block traffic turning off of El Camino onto Oak Grove as they wait to turn, when they do turn, they do quickly without looking for pedestrians crossing the roadway. I assume they are either heading to Santa Cruz Ave and do not want to make a U-turn on El Camino, or that they want to use the parking lot. Both could be accomplished if they went down another block or two to Chestnut or Crane.

Because I walk the neighborhood everyday, I've seen many near collisions. I've also seen a young boy on a bicycle get hit by a car.

We have the post office, a fire station, a busy El Camino intersection, bicycles and pedestrians. It's very congested. And often quite dangerous.

I know you are considering putting a bike lane on Oak Grove, and I fully support this. But please consider putting up signage or road barriers to prevent left hand turns onto Maloney Lane and left hand turns from Maloney Lane onto Oak Grove Ave.

Thank you for your time and for all you do for Menlo Park.

Ann Eisenberg
