Two Upcoming Meetings in Moraga

The Moraga Town Council will discuss different options to improve pedestrian and bicycle circulation while maintaining a high level of service for cars along Moraga Road between Campolindo High School and the St. Mary's Road crossing at 7 p.m. tonight. The meeting will be held in the auditorium of Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School.
Discussion of the Livable Moraga Road project began a year and a half ago. At the end of a series of meetings, a majority of participants rallied around a reduction of Moraga Road to three lanes between Corliss Drive and Donald Drive, with pocket lanes for left turns, and maintaining four lanes from Donald Drive to the Rheem Boulevard crossing where the road already becomes two lanes, going north. As proposed, the corridor would include a continuous multi-use path from the Commons to Campolindo High School, new pedestrian crossings, bike lanes and sidewalks, and intersection improvement at Rheem Boulevard, Corliss Drive, St. Mary's Road and around the high school frontage. More information about the Livable Moraga Road Project can be found at www.moraga.ca.us/livablemoragaroad.
The Public Works Department will hold a second community outreach meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 20 in the La Sala Room at the Hacienda de las Flores, 2100 Donald Drive. The antiquated bridge located on Canyon Road over the West San Leandro Creek was found structurally deficient, and is a hazard to pedestrians and bicyclists because it is so narrow. The town decided to construct a new bridge and is conducting extensive outreach due to the importance of that bridge. At this meeting a revised conceptual plan addressing the concerns received at the first meeting in October will be presented. Construction is currently scheduled for 2016. Information on the project is available online (moraga.ca.us, enter canyon bridge in the search window), including a description of the project and responses to the questions that have been asked by residents.
