Belmont Ralston

The Ralston Avenue Corridor Study

Overview

The Ralston Avenue Corridor Study and Improvements Project is a 2012/13 Belmont City Council Priority project.

Ralston Avenue is an east-west divided arterial and a major thoroughfare that extends from State Route 92 in the west to U.S. Highway 101 in the east. The cross section varies from four lanes at its western end to two lanes at/near Alameda De Las Pulgas; and, again widens back to four lanes near Twin Pines Park and City Hall. Ralston Avenue is a unique and distinctive corridor in the region. This distinctive character of Ralston is due to the varying degrees of urban setting, cross-section and topography, which can be experienced as one travels through the corridor.

What is the study?

The purpose of the study is to determine the adequacy of the corridor for multi-modal use including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit, and vehicles under existing and future conditions, and to develop context sensitive transportation alternatives to improve multi-modal use along the corridor. 

As this corridor is diverse in pedestrian activity, traffic patterns and community character, the corridor has been broken into three distinct segments:

* Area 1 (Downtown) – Highway 101 to South Road
* Area 2 (Middle Segment) – South Road to Alameda de las Pulgas
* Area 3 (Western Segment) – Alameda de las Pulgas to Highway 92

By breaking the corridor down, the community and project team can focus on the specific issues within that area. As the project progresses, the concepts developed for each area will be blended to create a comprehensive plan for improving access and mobility along the entire corridor.
