Undisclosed meetings, private funds cloud downtown debate
The revised plan for 27 University Ave. includes major changes to the network of roads around the Caltrain station, including a Transit Ring Road that allows traffic to enter and exit at El Camino Real. The plan also calls for a new bike and pedestrian underpass at Lytton Avenue and a two-way, 10-foot-wide bike route by the busy station. The new bike lanes would be between the sidewalk and median and would "be differentiated from the sidewalk by a slight change in level, a different color, or both."
