SamTrans released draft recommendations that would address traffic congestion and create new mobility alternatives along the Dumbarton Corridor between Alameda County and San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The recommendations were presented during the SamTrans Board of Directors’ August meeting and here are the result of the Dumbarton Transportation Corridor Study. The full report is expected to be released on Aug. 15. Public meetings on the study will be held on Aug. 15 in Union City and Aug. 16 in East Palo Alto.

The study evaluated a wide range of transportation alternatives, and recommends operations and infrastructure improvements that would be phased in over time on the highway bridge, its approaches and the Dumbarton Rail Bridge. The study was a collaborative project that enlisted the San Mateo County Transportation Authority, Alameda County Transportation Commission, AC Transit and Facebook as partners, as well as the cities in the corridor. The SamTrans board of directors will receive a final report including public feedback from the hearings for their consideration in October.
