Honorable Council Members and Staff,

Thank you for considering comments on the SamTrans Dumbarton Corridor
Feasibility Study. The study includes welcome, ambitious proposals to
greatly improve transportation on the congested corridor. Major
improvements are important to support the City's goals to create
Live/Work/Play neighborhoods and to support economic growth.

Here are a few suggested additions to the set of valuable comments:

* Opportunities for TDM/TMA partnerships to reduce single occupant trips
among the cities that attract the vast majority of peak hour trips (Redwood
City, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Mountain View). Actions here might be on the
part of cities in partnership with SamTrans.

* Grade separation concepts at Willow Road and University Avenue and
Bayfront Expressway, including an estimate of the height of any bridge
structures that could be constructed with such alternatives, //and
visualizations of these structures showing relationship to existing and
proposed developments near the Willow and Marsh infrastructure,
understandable by community members//

* Show how pedestrian/bike connectivity would be maintained and improved
with the implementation of grade separation concepts

* Assessment of end to end peak hour travel time change to key
destinations including Downtown Menlo Park and Downtown Palo Alto

* Assessment of potential for induced demand generating additional vehicle
trips if proposed improvements offer congestion relief

Thank you for your consideration,

- Adina
