meeting, Fehr & Peers will discuss that the purpose of the turnaround is to provide adequate space for westbound vehicles to turn around to access the school parking and drop-off area on the south side of 53rd Street, while also permitting local through traffic.

The intent of the design is also consistent with the City of Emeryville Green Street classification of 53rd Street. The purpose of this meeting is to determine if the City of Oakland would be supportive of the roadway improvement concept, subject to review of detailed improvement plans.

Conceptual Refinement and Technical Validation of 53rd Street Turnaround and Drop-off
