SamTrans will host two community meetings next week to continue ongoing discussions on a transportation feasibility study for the Dumbarton Corridor.
The feasibility study will identify short- and long-term strategies for reducing traffic congestion and increasing mobility between Alameda, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties within the Dumbarton Corridor. It will examine potential congestion-relief alternatives for the Dumbarton Highway Bridge and its connecting roadways. It will also explore the possibilities of rehabilitation and repurposing of the Dumbarton Rail Bridge that is directly south of the Dumbarton Highway Bridge.
The meetings next week will provide a study update and will review study goals, evaluation metrics and initial alternatives examined. Staff will also detail the initial screening of alternatives and discuss which options will be carried forward for further evaluation.
Members of the public are welcome to provide input at two scheduled community meetings next week:
