Rengstorff/Central Expy Traffic?
Original post made by Casper48, Castro City, on May 16, 2007
Has anyone else noticed changes in the traffic pattern at Rengstorff and Central?
I commute to downtown Palo Alto Mon-Fri. at 8-8:10 am. Since January, I have noticed a change in the flow of traffic. Seems like the Central Expy traffic now has priority. With the train crossing at Rengstorff, autos crossing Central -- or turning onto Central from Rengstorff -- have always been given preference after the crossing gates go up. That's not happening anymore, and some days I have to sit through 3 stop lights on Rengstorff before I can turn onto Central.
PS: Before this stream becomes a stage for using public transportation, I would love to take the train but I need my car for work.
