Suggestion for Improving Traffic Circulation

From: domainremoved <Jym>

If Menlo and Oak Grove Avenues between El Camino Real and University
Avenue were one-way with cars circulating CCW, it would:

    1) Ease traffic congestion on these 2 streets;

    2) Provide room to add buffered bike lanes;

    3) Free up a lane on Ravenswood Ave at El Camino Real since there
    would no longer be the option of proceeding straight from Ravenswood
    onto Menlo. This excess lane could then be utilized for a double
    right turn off ECR onto Ravenswood going NE, saving some of the
    beautiful triangle area on the corner.

Note that there would be no need to make either Ravenswood or Oak Grove
NE of ECR one-way. One could consider making the block of University
between Santa Cruz Avenue and Menlo one-way (conforming to the CCW
circulation), which again would provide room for buffered bike lanes.

Since the Fire Station 6 vehicles need to go in both directions on Oak
Grove from the firehouse, the Oak Grove one-way could be limited to the
block between Crane Street and University.
