The Grand Boulevard Initiative: Creating Safe and Healthy Corridor Communities Project facilitated the design of multimodal streetscape improvements for two case study locations on El Camino Real in Redwood City and Palo Alto. This project was a critical first step toward implementing multimodal improvements, addressing safety issues in the El Camino Real Corridor, and realizing the Grand Boulevard Initiative Vision of people friendly places. Planning work began in the summer of 2017 and focused on the development of conceptual streetscape designs that could not only bring the Grand Boulevard Initiative Vision to reality but also provide Corridor guidance for future multimodal improvements.
Final Reports and Designs
The project was completed on February 28, 2019. A Final Report was developed for each case study segment detailing the local vision, community outreach results, case study designs, 3D concepts, and next steps. In addition, the final deliverables include a lessons learned memo that includes best practices, implantation strategies and design library. These documents are linked below.
