Mountain View City Council Members: Vote per neighborhood preferences for the Stierlin onramp

    1. Petition by

      Danelle Oravertz

      Mountain View, CA

The closure of the Stierlin onramp to Central Expressway could have huge impact on the neighborhood. Let's be sure the neighborhood wants this ramp to be permanently closed or to remain open before the council takes it to a final vote. In the "Why this is important to you" section please give you name and street address and then tell the City Council whether you would like the Sterlin onramp to remain open or to be permanently closed and why. Thank you for your time.

      The traffic plan is inadequate as the right lane expansion on castro might not be sufficient to take the load of 300 residence of this new complex, plus the existing traffic on Stierlin. It seems will be a traffic nightmare for moffett and central when the train signal is on.

      I use this ramp to go to work in the morning and 4 to 5 times a week. Commuter traffic on Moffit and the Expressway is already very congested, so use is the Stielin onramp

      I am concerned about the traffic patterns for Moffett and Central Expressway. We live off of Central Avenue and have at times had to wait through multiple lights to get onto Central Expressway when the trains are going through. We use Stierlin onramp at least 2x per week, if not more. The increase in traffic lately has affected our ability to get around easily. The light at Central Ave and Moffett is problematic when turning left to go onto Central Ave. Many times I wait through 2-3 cycles because of traffic going away from downtown and pedestrians/cyclists. Also, turning left onto Central Expressway from Moffett can be affected by the trains (don't know why that left turn signal does not allow traffic to clear up that backs up on Moffett during a 4 train delay). Please consider the traffic patterns and increasing the population density on this side of the railroad tracks. Also, please work with Google to clear up the traffic snarl that Shoreline has become.

      This is our neighborhood's main access route to the Central Expressway. Closing it would make the traffic snarl at the intersection of Central Expressway/Moffett/Castro even worse than it is now. Mountain View needs attention to quality-of-life issues, not yet another development.

      Thank you.

      The Stierlin onramp allows me timely access to Central Expressway. Without it, our neighborhood traffic is forced onto Moffett, where the trains already hold up traffic for up to fifteen--yes, fifteen--minutes. As I understand it, Promethean's project will, in addition to closing Stierlin, also add yet more traffic on Moffett. I vote against both moves.
