The intersection of San Bruno Avenue and Cherry Avenue is a busy major intersection located on the border between a residential neighborhood and business district. The Bayhill Shopping Center is located on the northwest corner of the intersection and there are freeway on/off ramps providing access to and from I-280 a quarter mile to the west. As traffic increases, the City recognizes the need to improve both operations and safety at the intersection for both pedestrians and vehicles.
This project includes multi-faceted improvements to separate the Caltrain ROW (right-of-way) from vehicle and pedestrian ROW. At South Linden Avenue and Scott Street, a grade separation project would result in the train tracks being separated from the roadway and/or pedestrian/bicycle crossing.
Susan Drive is a local residential street that runs approximately 3/4 mile parallel to Skyline Boulevard from Sharp Park Road to College Drive. The road has a posted speed limit of 25MPH for its entire length. Residents in the vicinity of Susan Drive expressed concerns related to traffic speeds. This project aims to improve traffic safety by increasing sight distance at the four T-intersections of Susan Drive by installing corner bulb outs. Accessible pathways for pedestrians are to be provided through the bulb out, including construction of pedestrian ramps on the existing corners.
