CASTRO VALLEY -- Alameda County wants to hear residents' suggestions on how to improve safety along heavily traveled Crow Canyon Road, where accidents are all too common as motorists use it as a shortcut between Interstates 580 and 680.

A workshop where the public will be asked to share their ideas about Crow Canyon' problems is planned for Wednesday. The workshop is part of a study that Alameda County is doing to identify safety needs for all users of the road, including motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians, along a six-mile stretch from Greenridge Road north to the Contra Costa County line.

Wednesday's meeting is the first of three planned public workshops, said Jim Pun of Transportation Infrastructure Group of Pleasanton, which is working on the study with the county.

"We want to get the public's input. We'll then combine the information we gather and come up with several alternatives, depending on the comments made," he said. Those alternatives would be presented at a second workshop later this spring, though the exact date has not been set.

Alameda County also is undertaking traffic safety studies of Tesla and Patterson Pass roads in the eastern part of the county.

Wednesday's meeting begins at 6 p.m. in Room D-11 of Canyon Middle School, 19600 Cull Canyon Road.
