El Camino Real in Menlo Park

Dear City Council:
Thank you for the many hours you've put in on the issue of whether or not to narrow El Camino by converting lanes to bike lanes. El Camino is an unsafe route for bicyclists even with a bike lane. Alma Street over the bridge from Palo Alto is a much safer route. The proposed pedestrian tunnel under the tracks should have bike lanes so those needing to cut into Menlo Park near Middle, can do so without riding on El Camino.

El Camino needs 3 lanes in each direction because Alma Street's 2 lanes (one lane for only 4 blocks before joining El Camino in MP so yes, - 2 lanes) join El Camino's 3 lanes coming north out of Palo Alto- 5 lanes converging into 3 and then into 2 at Ravenswood. Not real surprising it is gridlocked. It took me 30 minutes to get from Allied Arts Guild to the library using Cambridge to El Camino to Ravenswood. The smart drivers went behind Big 5 and exited onto Ravenwood through the parking lot. That's a strange traffic pattern.
