In an effort to promote connectivity within the City of San Carlos and to enhance accessibility to residents, the East Side Connect Project was developed along the entire length of Old County Road. This stretch of road is now a complete street, meaning that it provides safe and comfortable environment for many modes of transportation, including walking and biking.
Jeff Speck tackles the issue of lane-width and safety in the online publication, The Atlantic CityLab. Speck provides evidence to support 10-foot wide traffic lanes for pedestrian safety as opposed to the 12-foot wide traffic lanes that are currently the standard for urban roadways and transportation corridors like El Camino Real.
