Andy Coe (Director of Community Relations, Stanford University) and Jim
Inglis (Manager of Design and Construction, Stanford Management Company)
came to SLAC in December to present the latest information on the Sand
Hill Road Menlo Park Roadway Improvement Project. The project includes
many initiatives to be carried out over the next two years. There is a
possibility that work will be delayed by a year, starting Phase One in
2005. If all goes according to plan, the project schedule follows.
Pre-construction Activities, Clearing & Utility Work (Jan Apr) Phase
One Roadway Construction (Apr Nov) Sand Hill Road widening, golf course
reconfiguration and parallel bridge construction (four lanes from I-280 to
Stanford Shopping Center) Alpine Road/Junipero Serra (interim
Pre-construction Activities, Clearing and Utility Work (Jan Apr)
Phase Two Roadway Construction (Apr Nov) Santa Cruz Ave widening (closed
between Sand Hill Road & Junipero Serra Blvd) Complete Intersections:
Junipero Serra Blvd/Alpine Rd/Santa Cruz Ave & Sand Hill Road/Santa Cruz
The work on affected intersections will include extended bike lanes,
additional dedicated left-turn lanes, and improved pedestrian crossings.
Stanford University is not only funding the project, but also giving up
significant real estate to make room for expanded roadways.
Stanford University intends to minimize disruption and inconvenience
during construction, and to be responsive to issues as they arise. For
more information call the Project Information Hotline (650-306-0350).
In the future, periodic updates will be posted at:
