Farm Hill Blvd. to Undergo Improvements

The city is hosting a community meeting to get your input.

Adding bike lanes? Reconfiguring lanes? The city wants your input to make Farm Hill Boulevard a safer and more livable street.

Farm Hill Boulevard is going to be resurfaced this summer, but without concrete plans just yet.

Many residents have expressed concern over the speeds with which cars travel down the street, as evidenced by reports in the Redwood City Police Department blotters. This is the chance to suggest improvements.

The meeting will be held Tuesday, June 12 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the , Fellowship Center at 3560 Farm Hill Boulevard. Light refreshments will be provided.

For more information, contact Jessica Manzi, the city’s Senior Transportation Coordinator at  (650)780‐7372 or jmanzi@redwoodcity.org.

Observing speed limits with pride is my rule. Plus a lower gear to slow down with helps. Works for me. While I'm at it. You GHG freeks should enjoy the lower GHG out put at lower speeds. How about you speeders on Brewster at Sequoia High School. Its 25 WHEN CHILDREN ARE PRESENT. thats Twenty-Five Please!! Reguardless of weather there is a fence or not around the school grounds.....

It would be unthinkably scandalous not have bike lanes after a resurface & restripe job. Of course, Jefferson really, really needs them very badly. The way to do this is just like was done on Industrial between Whipple and the San Carlos border (or on Middelfield between Woodside and downtown): go to a 3-vehicle lane configuration where the center is reserved for left & right turns. This creates enough room for bicycle lanes and studies show this barely affects throughput while effecting "traffic calming," improved sightlines and safety for both motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Jefferson between El Camino and Farm Hill is really, really overdue for this.
