  • 989-1019 Broadway Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    Hi -- We absolutely need TWO left turn lanes from Broadway onto Rollins Road while traveling toward 101. There is room for a second turn lane (now filled with signs) and the construction workers are parking in the second lane after the turn. Please make this happen! Traffic now backs up across California Drive since left turn and straight traffic mix and the signals are timed differently. This is dangerous!!! Thanks.
  • 101 Lorton Avenue Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    I recently requested that the city traffic engineer review the poor visibility at the intersection of Lorton Ave. and Bayswater Ave. It was concluded that there is not an issue, but I disagree. The city added a red zone on the southwest corner of this intersection and it helped those turning onto Bayswater from Lorton. The white zone in front of the church provides better visibility too. The issue remains the southeast and northwest corners, which have no red curb zone. Without the red zone, cars can park right up to the corner and this limits visibility dramatically. I regularly drive down Bayswater and have had cars pull out in front of me from Lorton because they cannot see opposing traffic. Please see the attached photo taken on December 19.
  • 1040-1070 Broadway Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    This was reported earlier as issue 1866097 and subsequently fixed, but it seems like the issue was reintroduced while work on the Broadway interchange continued.
    Basically, when going southbound on Broadway and you come to the Carolan intersection right before the train tracks, There are two dedicated left turn lanes to head to Carolan. The problem is, the right turn lane has always been, historically, a lane that allowed drivers to drive straight forward across the tracks to enter the turn lane for California. This is supremely idiotic for multiple reasons.
    For one thing, drivers are still driving straight to cross the tracks from the right side dedicated turn lane, because the signage is terrible and because they've done that for years and it just makes sense. This causes confusion to drivers on the lane to the immediate right of that lane who try to merge over to the turn lane onto California because suddenly they have to watch out for traffic coming into their lane unexpectedly from the left. Secondly, even if all the drivers were following the signage, you're asking people to change lanes right before train tracks in an intersection that has a history of car strikes because of how the lighted intersection is set up just past the tracks. You guys have set up an already dangerous intersection to now be confusing as well.
    Based on what i saw of the Interchange plans, it seems like the dual turn lanes towards Carolan were always part of the plan, which is idiotic because hardly anyone needs to turn onto Carolan and the reasons i listed above. While the issue appeared to have been fixed in early 2016, someone didn't let the street painters in on the change because the dangerous intersection is back.
  • 1000 Broadway Burlingame, CA 94010, USA - Burlingame

    I know this is Caltrans' project but this is the third time I've seen somebody get confused by the signals here.

    Drivers on Broadway are confusing the signals on the overpass for the signal they should be following when stopped at Rollins. There are 3 sets of signals drivers are looking at - ones on the steel arm over the roadway which is still off, the temporary signals on overhead span wires and then the permanent signals on a steel arm on the overpass. People are confused. This morning a driver didn't know and was inches away from a bad crash (see photo).

    It's been months like this. Pls turn on the correct signals. And make sure the other set of signals aren't confusing or as visible. Please someone is going to get hurt.

  • 1101 E Hillsdale Blvd Foster City, CA 94404, USA - Foster City
    The traffic on E Hillsdale and Foster City Blvd/3rd Ave has increased substantially because people are cutting through FC to avoid the 92/101 interchange. They get off on Hillsdale or 3rd and congest E Hillsdale, our east bound 92 onramp, and Foster City Blvd/3rd Ave. Can we do anything about this? I know Los Gatos is able to close an on/off ramp to prevent traffic congestion related to people cutting through LG to avoid the 17/85 interchange.
  • 119 Goldhunter Ct Foster City, California - Foster City
    the tenant has been running airbnb type lodging business for about two years as soon as they moved in. I filed a complaint over a year ago and, upon city's investigation, they pulled off airbnb and other ads. But the activities have never stopped and even escalated. Now there are average 7-8 cars, 1-2 motorcycles and multiple uber dropoff and pickups every day. Cars often parked and left in the middle of night with young men and women in and out. I have talked to neighbors and we are all concerned about the safety and parking congestions in this supposedly quiet cul de sac area. The tenant's self claim that they only host visiting friends are total BS and we are all willing to confront them directly if necessary. Let us know if you need further evidence, thank you.

    411 Beach Park Foster City, California - Foster City
    Sidewalk on Castor Street side of this property is very uneven. It is used by many schoolchildren every day and is a tripping hazard to them and their caretakers.

  • Traffic Concerns Acknowledged
    1500 & 1600 Blocks Of Howard Avenue Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    The 1500 and 1600 blocks of Howard Avenue, immediately west of El Camino, are in dire need of some sort of vehicle speed calming. Vehicles traveling east speed up to make the green light at El Camino. Vehicles traveling west from the stoplight at El Camino speed up because they've been in traffic and they see open space and accelerate. We need either a stop sign at the corner of Howard and Crescent, speed bumps, an electronic speed sign indicator or a combination. I would be happy to organize a collection of residents to meet with appropriate city employees if that would help.
    Thank you,

  • 3187-3199 Trousdale Drive Burlingame, California - Burlingame
    This is a junction that is clearly marked, the left lane can only turn left, and the right lane can only go forward. But the cars in the left lane usually just continue forward, almost hitting the cars that are legally continuing forward. Proposed lane marking fix on the picture.
