There have been no less than three previous access burlingame threads on this. All about the dangerous condition of that double left turn. Altogether this is the most commented on issue on this app. And it was eventually 'fixed' when the folks finally recognized how bad it was. And it was allowed to happen again.
I guess we all just have to be extra careful and look out for each other. Because nobody seems to be looking out for us.
Here are the previous discussions and commitments to fix:
2 Lanes going to Carolan
1 Lane going to Broadway and California = Cutting you off
Cars backing up to Bridge/Rollins Rd
2 completely diff/confusing signage/road marking
Pls fix before an accident happens - this is totally something that has not been thought about
Did Caltrans do this on their own?
Or did they get approval from the City to do it?
Seems like a pretty important point if Caltrans did something on a Burlingame street without permission.
I'll be impressed if anybody owns up to this. A little humility would go a long way toward restoring trust in the folks who are supposed to be looking out for us.
And I have a suggestion - get some extra eyes on the revised plan, get some people who are familiar with the problems of this particular intersection to review before changing it again.
Hi Mr Transportation Engr MT,
Or did they get City approval to do it?
Please enlighten those of us who drive thru here everyday & risk our sanity if not our lives just trying to do the right thing.
New sign alert:
Looks like our City Traffic Engineer has indeed worked with Caltrans and has gotten us ... a nice new overhead sign indicating their joint intent to have two lanes turn left onto Carolan.
Thanks for listening & not ignoring your residents.
Finally on day 42, the 2nd set of left turn arrows onto Carolan have been quietly removed. You can see the pavement scars of where the left turn arrows and lane used to be.
However, the sign over head on the signal still says two left turn lanes. So there’s still confusion as the pavement indications don’t match the signs. So close.
Thx, Greg, for taking the initiative and contacting the city.
Just heard from another civic-minded local (a Broadway merchant) who contacted Caltrans directly, pointed out the need to make sure the signs match the paint and got Caltrans to commit to change the sign as soon as possible.
Way to go Burlingame citizens taking ownership of a problem and proactively doing something about it!
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
