You can comment online about the proposed design for the Bay Trail segment to complete the gap near Facebook.
The MidPeninsula Regional Open Space District gave a presentation yesterday in Menlo Park about the proposed design to fill the gap. The proposed new trail segment is about .6 miles long. It will connect to the segment that Facebook has promise to build parallel to University, will run for about half the distance on what is currently a construction access road used for the SFPUC Hetch Hetchy project. The remaining connection will have sections of paved trail over dirt, and boardwalk over wetland.
Some of the comments at last night’s meeting included adding pedestrian extensions for birdwatchers, so they can stand and observe wildlife out of the way of joggers and cyclists; considering how to accommodate people at different speeds (without asking cyclists to walk), and avoiding 90% and sharper turns for bike safety.
There will be another in-person meeting to look at big pictures of the design and give comments, at East Palo Alto City Hall, Monday night 9/24 at 6pm.
