City Awarded $18.3 Million Grant for Final Design Phase of Broadway Grade Separation Project

The City of Burlingame has been working closely with Caltrain to upgrade the Broadway railroad crossing by creating a junction with two different "grades" or heights so that train traffic will be completely separated from motorist, cyclist, and pedestrian traffic. The project will significantly improve safety and alleviate traffic congestion along the Broadway corridor and surrounding area.
The City of Burlingame and Caltrain are currently working to complete environmental studies and preliminary design for the Broadway Grade Separation Project. More detail about the project is available by clicking here. The City had requested grant funds from the San Mateo County Transportation Authority for moving the project into its final design phase. At its July 11, 2019 board meeting, the San Mateo County Transportation Authority approved a $18.3 million grant for developing the final design. Once the design is completed, the project will then be considered "shovel ready" and eligible to apply for future grants and other funding sources for the construction phase of the project.
