Livable Moraga Road Joint Commission Meeting Update

On October 21, the Planning Commission, Design Review Board and Park and Recreation Commission held a joint meeting to consider the recommendation of the Town Advisory Committee (TAC) for Livable Moraga Road (LMR). The TAC endorsed the overall corridor concept which includes a continuous multi-use path, sidewalks and bike lanes, and intersection improvements such as a new traffic signal at Corliss Drive, modification of the Rheem Boulevard/Moraga Road intersection to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety, and working with the Acalanes Union High School District to improve congestion around Campolindo High School. For Segment 3, (between Donald Drive and Corliss Drive), the TAC recommended, as a short term configuration, either Option B or C, and for long-term, Option B. Both Options involve reducing the number of travel lanes in this segment to accommodate a multi-use path, sidewalk, parking and bike lanes. The Draft Corridor Concept and Segment 3 Options are available on the Livable Moraga Road webpage where residents can sign up for project updates and share comments.

The Board and Commissions had consensus that there could be a reduction in the number of through travel lanes in this segment, that introduction of a center turn lane was a beneficial safety improvement, and favored options that included a continuous multi-use path, bike lanes and sidewalks; although there was not complete consensus on whether Option B or C was preferable. There was also support for the overall corridor concept. The TAC and Joint Commissions’ recommendations will be brought to the Town Council in January 2015.
