California Drive Bicycle Facility Project
California Drive is a major north – south commuter corridor connecting surrounding residential areas to local businesses, schools, parks, the Millbrae BART/Caltrain/SamTrans Intermodal Station, Broadway Commercial District, Burlingame Caltrain Station, and Downtown Burlingame Avenue. California Drive was identified as a high-priority corridor for bicycle improvements in the City’s 2019 General Plan Update and the City’s 2020 Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan.
California Drive between Broadway and Oak Grove Avenue
In 2019, the City completed the construction of a Class II bikeway on California Drive from Murchison Avenue to north of Broadway. This current project will focus on 0.75 miles of Class II or better bike facility extension south of Broadway to Oak Grove Avenue, with coordinated improves to the California Drive Roundabout. The project aims to enhance bike connectivity across the city while improving the safety, comfort, and attractiveness of bicycling for people of varying ages and abilities.
In August 2020, the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) issued its fifth Pedestrian and Bicycle Program Congestion Relief Plan, announcing the availability of up to $8.1 million in Measure A and Measure W funds for local projects that support walking and biking in San Mateo County. The City requested and was approved $800,000 of Measure A and Measure W funding for the California Drive Bicycle Facility Project. Measure A and Measure W funds are approved and allocated for the construction phase.
Initial outreach for this Project was conducted as part of the City's Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan effort.
