Will Stanford and Greenheart’s projects make traffic worse?

A:

Yes. The numerous new office workers commuting to Menlo Park will severely exacerbate rush hour gridlock on El Camino Real, leading to significantly more neighborhood cut-through traffic and additional congestion throughout Menlo Park on routes to freeways. Measure M, by encouraging true mixed-use development, promotes a much more balanced traffic pattern that spreads traffic more throughout the day rather than  concentrated at rush hours.  And because development will serve the needs of the community, more of the trips will originate locally rather than from out of town.
