A Community Meeting on Alternatives will be held Tuesday, July 29 at 6:30 p.m. in the Downtown Library Community Room. Be there by 6:45 for a brief presentation! Click here for the meeting flyer and tell your friends! This meeting will highlight concepts for improving the interchange and addressing existing problems, as defined by both community members and the technical team. The project team will describe the rationale for improvements, and will provide close-up views of several alternatives at interactive stations. Community input received at this upcoming meeting will help the project team further identify preferred concepts.
The March 31, 2014 Community Open House was a great success based on all the input, comments, and questions raised by enthusiastic participants who provided a good blend of optimism and skepticism. A few major themes emerged:
- Improvement is essential but challenging due to the limited area available;
- Provision of bicycle and pedestrian facilities is critical; and
- There are questions and concerns about the project's ability to improve existing congestion and accommodate additional traffic to be generated by current and future development.

The City of Redwood City, in cooperation with the California Department of Transportation and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, is proposing to reconstruct the Route 101/84 (Woodside Road) interchange. The purpose of the project is to relieve existing and future traffic congestion, and to improve traffic safety and vehicular access to and from Route 101 and SR 84 (Woodside Road). The goals include improving highway operations, reducing associated congestion on Redwood City streets, removing barriers to non-motorized travel, and minimizing impacts on nearby businesses. The project proposes to modify the on- and off-ramp configuration at the interchange and adjacent local intersections to improve traffic flow, increase safety, and better accommodate pedestrian and bicycle access across Route 101.
The City hired a consultant team led by URS to conduct the Project Approval & Environmental Document (PA & ED) phase of the project. This two-year phase began in late 2013 and includes data gathering and mapping, development and implementation of a community outreach process, traffic analysis of existing and future conditions, definition and evaluation of geometric improvement alternatives, environmental analysis and documentation of a preferred alternative, and development of a project report.
The two-year-long community engagement and visioning process will provide both high tech (website, email lists, and other social media) and high touch (one-on-one engagement, small group meetings, large group workshops, and public hearings) opportunities for all interested parties to be informed and involved in the development of project alternatives.
