Quarry Road Improvements and Transit Center Access Project
The August 2011 Development Agreement between Stanford Hospital and Clinics, the Lucile Salter Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, the Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University and the City of Palo Alto obligated the City to design and construct enhancements of various pedestrian and bicycle connections between the Palo Alto Intermodal Transit Center and the Stanford University Medical Campus (SUMC). Stanford provided funds for these projects. Specifically, the agreement called for:
- Improvements to Enhance the Pedestrian and Bicycle Connection from the Palo Alto Intermodal Transit Center to the existing intersection at El Camino Real and Quarry Road, including development of an attractive, landscaped passive park/green space with a clearly marked and lighted pedestrian pathway, benches and flower borders. Construction for this project has been completed.
- Improvements to and within the public right of way to enhance the pedestrian and bicycle connection from the west side of El Camino Real to Welch Road, including way finding, wider bicycle lanes, as necessary on Quarry Road, enhanced transit nodes for bus and/or shuttle stops, and prominent bicycle facilities.
Update: Construction for this portion of the project has been delayed until further notice due to upcoming electrical work on Quarry Road.
